Will Coronavirus Lead to a Recession?

Coronavirus Pushing Us Into Recession? Coronavirus has hit the economy hard indeed.Are we entering into a recession post lockdown? There’s a funny Cricket video on YouTube in which a fielder on the boundary puts in an intense dive and slides to save the boundary and also manages to save it but, in his effort takes off the pants (the lower slips off due to the impact of dive and slide). On the one hand, the spectators appreciate the effort but they can not stop laughing when they see the player without pants. Now, imagine the boundary as pandemic and pants as the economy. While the government is doing everything to control the spread of the pandemic, the economy is suffering in parallel.

Coronavirus Update: Govt. Caps Prices of Sanitizers & Mask.

Government has capped the prices of sanitizers and masks.What all is being done to fight Coronavirus? If you would have interacted with stock traders (not investors) who always speculate the prices of stocks and put their money accordingly, you would have heard much time of their speculation going wrong. It so happens that they buy stocks in bulk at a higher price because they do not speculate the prices to go down. Afterward, when the prices go down, they regret having paid a higher price. Something similar must have happened with people who would have bought masks & sanitizer in panic (at a higher price) post the outbreak of Coronavirus. The government has capped the rate of sanitizers and masks to provide some relief to the people in these hard times. The private manufacturers have also welcomed this step by the government and are scaling their production to meet the rising demand in the market. What has the government decided exactly, read on to find out?

Reality of Coronavirus Test in India: Covid-19 Update

Confirmed Coronavirus cases in India is still less than many other countries. Is it because of lesser tests being conducted? Besides being the largest bird, Ostrich is also known for its special characteristic to ignore adversity. And the way it does that is even more weird. Whenever an Ostrich senses trouble, it buries its head under the sand (or in the ground if possible) and this way it feels safe. The key here is that the trouble isn’t actually going away but the Ostrich is feeling safe although it actually isn’t. Is this safe for the Ostrich? Not at all!

Yes Bank Update- Know About 3 Years Lock-in

Yes Bank investors are now facing a three-year lock-in period. What’s going on? When a new animal is brought to a zoo, it has to stay there for a certain period. Whether the animal is uncomfortable or it’s enjoying its stay there, it doesn’t have an option to exit. We had never thought that this phenomenon could be applied to human beings as well. But, this has been imposed upon a group of investors who have now been virtually locked down with their investment and won’t be able to exit for next three years. We’re talking about those who have invested in Yes Bank. The rescue plan for the reconstruction of ailing Yes Bank has been introduced with a twist. A three-year minimum lock-in period has been imposed on the shareholders who hold more than 100 shares of Yes Bank (to an extent of 75 percent of their holdings).

Reasons Behind Stock Market Crash 2020

Reasons Behind Stock Market Crash 2020

Market crashed wildly due to Coronavirus. What exactly happened? More than half of the global population doesn’t know how to swim though it is a life skill, according to a report. That’s a problem but there’s more to it. It has been scientifically proven that more than the deep waters, it’s the panic that kills people. Whenever a person gets stuck in water and has no other option but to swim, in most of the cases it so happens that the person starts panicking and assuming that he/she will die. Because of this, the person reduces his chance of survival and dies. This shows how important sentiment could be. Sentiment is one of the most prominent factors that led to the recent stock market crash. Not in the long term, but sentiment does affect the market in the short term. And that extent has been shown in the recent market crash. That sentiment could be compared with the panic that we mentioned earlier.

Crude Oil Price : Why Prices are Falling

Crude Oil Price : Why Prices are Falling

The 3 basic needs of humankind that include food, shelter and clothes have evolved over time and now, few more things have been added to this list like electricity, internet etc. This is at an individual level. However, if you consider an entire nation then fulfilling these needs is almost impossible without one thing and that’s crude oil. Crude oil doesn’t affect our life directly but it’s an indirect basic need of our life. This basic need was controlled by a global cartel called OPEC (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries) along with Russia & US till now. Whenever a government was questioned about rising oil prices, it blamed the international oil prices. But, the nation never questioned that why can’t these prices be controlled at an international level? But now the things have changed with Saudi Arabia breaking the cartel and engaging in a price war.

What’s the Reality Behind Sonbhadra Gold Mine?

We Indians simply love gossiping. Be it about any topic or with any person, we just love talking about things (even if we don’t know an iota of it). Although, none of us may agree with this but deep inside we know that it’s true. There’s a game called Chinese Whisper that you might have probably played as a child. In this, a group of people form a queue and the first person whispers something in the ear of the next person. The next person then passes on the whisper to the person next in queue and this goes on. Finally, the last person reveals what he/she heard in the whisper.

Economic Impact of the Indian Premier League

Indian Premier League is round the corner.What are the financial aspects related to it? A few months down the line Indians would compete with each other to prove their dominance and for this, they’ll take help from the foreigners too. This would take place as a festival of sorts. People will support their states instead of the country. And, we’ll witness a distorted form of the ‘Gentleman’s Game’ in the form of an extravaganza. Indian Premier League (IPL) which is casually referred to as ‘Cricketainment’ will start by the end of March. And, since it is not just about Cricket but more of entertainment, it will bring with itself some repercussions that are not truly aligned with the spirit of the game. Besides this, the economics of IPL churns in millions and billions of rupees.
