Sustaining Growth in the Era of Global Recovery
In the era of global recovery while we can always aspire to have a strong rupee exchange rate, this has to be earned and the present Indian policy is clearly unsustainable. To ensure sustainment with an inflation rate above global levels and a current account deficit that is over 3 percent of GDP India should depreciate its currency. This is best done through large market interventions followed by liquidity mop-up as in 2005-2007.
A useful indicator of an appropriate exchange rate is the Real Effective Exchange rate (REER) Index using trade weights. In India, a six country REER with 1993-94 as base has been used. Some economists argue that India should transform the large capital inflows into investments and thereby strengthen the growth process. The historical evidence shows that, the world over, large capital inflows are followed by large capital outflows. Thus excessive dependence on capital inflows could be disruptive when there are outflows.
RBI, in addition, should raise the Cash reserve Ratio (CRR) and absorb liquidity under the Liquidity Adjustment Facility (LAF) and issue Market Stabilization Bonds. These measures do entail a cost. But the cost of non intervention, though not easily quantifiable, can be deleterious to the economy by way of loss of competitiveness, loss of output, increased unemployment and inflation. Unless effective sterilization measures are undertaken the country will face a severe dislocation when there are large capital outflows. One cannot drink sweet tender coconut water without breaking the coconut. Put it in a nut-shell, the Indian Policy has to undergo a through renaissance to sustain growth history.
