ECONOMY NEWS :

  • Reserve Bank of India Governor Raghuram Rajan said on Tuesday the focus should be on how to ensure banks bring down their lending rates, rather than on debating how many rate cuts the central bank should be delivering.”It’s important not to fixate with the 25 basis point or 50 basis point (rate cut) or whatever number one thought was possible, but to focus on the process by which lower rates are being transmitted into the market which should be extremely helpful,” Rajan told analysts during a teleconference.
  • Australia’s student housing market is shaping up to be the next big thing as an influx of foreign scholars entices investors into a neglected sector, reinvigorating a home building boom that is providing vital support to the wider economy.An English-speaking country at the doorstep of Asia and offering an enviable quality of life, Australia now sits with the United States and United Kingdom as a top destination for foreign students.
