Gita Gopinath highlighted financial stress among shadow banks and poor growth in rural incomes as pain points
Gita Gopinath, as befits the chief economist of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), has always been guarded in what she says. So, when she said India needed investment and ought to encourage it, she was only stating the obvious. But wait, she was speaking to a TV channel in Davos, the Swiss resort where the World Economic Forum is holding its annual huddle of bigwigs, and in the context of the so-called snub India’s government gave Amazon.com chief Jeff Bezos on his visit to the country last week. This has sent some people scurrying to scan everything she’s said about India for signs of a political bias.
