The Fiscal Deficit disregarded by everyone except the polity entrusted with taking care of it, the markts have moved into a stronger bull orbit eased into place by not existing but foreseen liquidity from the Eurozone as other markets ecept for India may not have the fundamental strength and “systemic” growth push carrying them when the Euro indeed does not act on its proposed bailouts for another three months.

The Money Olympics of course, much like the real ones already have many others with a track record and yet, better infrastructure facilities and a researched background. We are left with a few Silvers speaking to our inherent underrating by the “forever in trouble” rating agencies and a less than half a dozen india bulls taken seriously internationally, Mongolia and Indonesia inching up to catch up to India’s weightage in the Asia and Growth indices.
