    Short extract:

    ...First, the Supreme Court of the US began hearings in a case filed by a baker from Colorado, Jack Phillips, who had refused in 2012 to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple citing his religious beliefs. Second, the Senate passed a tax Bill with a tag provision that rescinds the (Lyndon) Johnson Amendment which has prohibited religious and charitable institutions (501 c(3) organizations in US tax statute) from making tax-deductible political contributions. The Johnson amendment promulgated in 1954 implied a clear separation of church and state. In different ways, both cases tackle the issue of the separation of religion and state. ...

    Short extract:

    ...AP India’s external affairs minister, Sushma Swaraj, made an unscheduled stop in Tehran on her way back from Russia, weeks after India flagged off the first shipments of wheat to Afghanistan using the much anticipated Chabahar port, on Iran’s south-eastern seaboard. The port, inaugurated by Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani a day after Swaraj’s visit, is marketed as a strategic home run by New Delhi. However, after more than a decade of abstraction, the very concept of “strategy” eludes this flagship undertaking. Delhi and Tehran have maintained amicable and warm ties throughout times of challenges and global uncertainties. Chabahar has, in a strange way, become a metric to gauge how close the two countries have remained during times of crisis over Western sanctions on Iran, and India’s votes against the country at the UN under American duress. ...

    Short extract:

    ...US President Donald Trump’s senior adviser, Ivanka Trump, highlighted in her keynote address that increasing the participation of women in the labour force would significantly boost the Indian economy. “Just consider, if India closes the labour force gender gap by half, your economy could grow by over $150 billion in the next three years,” she said. She was talking about a problem India may be quite familiar with but is finding hard to tackle. In the “Global Gender Gap Report” (2017) released recently by the World Economic Forum (WEF), India has been ranked a low 108 out of 144 countries on the gender equality scale, slipping from 87 last year. ...

    Short extract:

    ...Unfortunately, the world moved on without absorbing the lessons properly. Not surprisingly many avoidable though extreme disruptions, with some similarity to that of 1987, have been hitting the markets with remarkable regularity. Lessons from Black Monday could have cushioned the impact of events like the Long-Term Capital Management disaster (1998), the dot-com bust (1997-2001) and the global financial crisis (2007-2009)—if not prevented them altogether. Black Monday had its genesis in the usual suspects—unbridled greed, herd mentality, inability to raise even basic questions, poor memory of past market developments, and an uncontrollable urge to not be left behind peers. There was a new factor as well—the unrestricted application of derivative instruments, often by inexperienced people. ...

    Short extract:

    ...The tech giants are being blamed for a number of things: engaging in monopolistic practices, not doing enough to curb fake news, and violating the privacy of users. They have also been blamed for stagnation in wages and the decline in labour’s share of gross domestic product (GDP). And the biggest charge against Big Tech is that it is becoming a threat to freedom of expression and democracy itself. To substantiate this last point, Luigi Zingales of the University of Chicago Booth School of Business points out that “in the last year, 85% of the increase in ads online was shared by Google and Facebook”. As a disproportionate beneficiary of online advertisement revenue, Google and Facebook have effectively become gatekeepers of information that is accessible to users of their platforms. Zingales also offers some solutions. ...
