Self-Reliance in a Covid Economy
When should governments prioritise pandemic relief over economic protectionism? In this edition of my Owl Wisdom Podcast, I look at the Indian government's "Self-Reliance" economic stimulus packages and whether they are adequate to get India out of the pandemic and the economic slump, or are merely designed to shut out China. For more on the covid pandemic and the Indian as well as the global economy, listen to previous editions of my podcast and read my blog peripateticperch.com

The Post-Trump Global Economy
In this edition of the Owl Wisdom Podcast, I take a look at how Trump has fallen short of the economic promises he made and damaged global multilateralism with his America-first policies. I see his exit as a chance to remake the world economic order in order to revive trust, cooperation and confidence in an interdependent world. I also look at the chance to push through much-needed economic reforms, including reduction of inequality, climate change and regulation of tech.

The Problem with Pre-Covid Levels
This edition of my Owl Wisdom Podcast is prompted by a constant refrain and comparison that we always hear of pre-Covid days or years. Here I argue - like I did in my podcast on The Big Reset - that we need to take the pandemic as an opportunity to introduce meaningful reforms so that we can move forward from the pre-Covid world and make real progress.

The Rise of China
In this edition of my Owl Wisdom Podcast, I look at how countries, especially India, can tackle the rise of China by making their own economies more competitive. For India which has a large number of SMEs who operate in the dominant informal sector, I look to Germany's Mittelstand experience as a policy to learn from. I also explore specific areas where India can invest and boost its competitiveness.

Countries as Brands
In this episode I talk about brands and why we can consider countries too to be brands. I look at countries in the way they responded to the Covid pandemic and what that tells us about countries as brands. I discuss why it has a lot to do with culture and use Geert Hofstede's cultural dimensions of countries to make my point.

Preventing Global Economic Doomsday
This edition of Owl Wisdom Podcast focuses on the global economic downturn as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and examines what central banks and governments are doing to stimulate the economy. Economic relief in order to boost consumer demand and global trade are key to managing this public health crisis as well as the economic crisis, for this is no ordinary recession.
