It is a great feeling, but arguably the most damaging effect on investor sentiment over the past several years has been the activism of the tax authorities and the twists and turns in the interpretation of policies and contracts. in a market roiled by volatility. This message should be absorbed by the leaders of our new government Private capital will not flow towards India until and unless confidence and trust in its public institutions have been restored Investors did at one time regard India as a relatively “good bet” because of its strong fundamentals and the integrity of its institutions They did fret about the bureaucracy red tape and corruption but they felt assured that once these entry hurdles had been scaled the playing field would be kept even and that they would be treated fairly Today however their views have altered They are no longer confident about contract sanctity and worry they may be subject to the exercise of discretionary and whimsical authority The new government must change this perception This will not be easy It will require many policy changes and the executive will have to untangle projects from red tape But more than that it will require the new leadership to engage in a personal “charm” offensive Every company irrespective of size geography or ownership is ultimately run by a small handful of people It is this group that determines when where and how the company’s money is to be spent Their subjective predilections are a major determinant of investment decisions and often more important than sophisticated process driven and quantitatively rigorous project analysis A frictionless first step would be for the new prime minister to invite the top leadership of major companies involved in the sectors most important to us like energy infrastructure and mining for a personal tete a tete with him and his key cabinet officials His personal commitment to due process and the framework of law would go a long way to allay the “gut” concerns of this corporate elite The writer is the chairman of

it produced weren’t purely an offshoot of the US-Soviet missile competition but they were certainly energised by that competition AP Related News BY: Thomas L friedman Putin’s Crimea adventure has created the possibility of moving America into a clean energy future There are a lot of people who seem intent on restarting the Cold War — in both Moscow and Washington I am not one of them But if we’re going to have a new Cold War then I have one condition: I want a new moonshot The Space Race and the technologies it produced weren’t purely an offshoot of the US-Soviet missile competition but they were certainly energised by that competition Well if we’re going to go at it again this time I want an Earth Race I want America to lead in developing an energy policy that will weaken the oil-and-gas-autocracy of Russian President Vladimir Putin and as a byproduct produce the technologies that will mitigate climate change make America a global technology and moral leader and ensure that the next generation can thrive here on Earth And as opposed to the stimulus/ deficit debate in the energy case there really is now the raw material for a “Grand Bargain” between Democrats and Republicans — if President Obama wants to try to forge it Such an energy grand strategy would be a first It’s shocking how devoid of strategic intent US energy policy has been Both political parties have repeatedly let our economy be hostage to Middle Eastern and Latin American oil despots and to energy booms and busts The key ingredients for a new US energy strategy argues Hal Harvey the CEO of Energy Innovation is first “to optimise affordability reliability and clean together rather than one at the expense of the other” Second to “take advantage of new technology we finally have the capacity to build an energy system we can be proud of and by choosing this future we will stimulate even more technologies that deliver energy that is indeed affordable reliable and clean” And third to “ensure that our natural gas bonanza actually ushers in a truly clean future” Here’s the deal Obama should offer oil-patch Republicans and Democrats “You really want to open up the country to the exploration of natural gas You really want to be free to export oil and gas to global markets — so long as it’s consistent with our national interests — and affect global markets in ways that could weaken Putinism You really want the Keystone pipeline Fine I’ll give you all of it And in return you’ll give me a bridge to a secure clean-energy future for America” Harvey argues that such a deal should include the following: First to ensure that natural gas is a boon rather than a curse the oil and gas industry — and the lawmakers they control — have to accept national rules for extracting natural gas based on known best practices including strategies that eliminate the leakage of methane which is so much more potent a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide Second we need to set a national clean energy standard for electricity One popular approach is to require utilities to raise the fraction of their electricity from zero-carbon sources — such as wind solar or nuclear — by say 2 per cent per year Such a standard creates a market for renewables which drives down costs and helps ensure that natural gas is a transition fuel that replaces coal not solar wind and other clean power sources Thirty states have some variant of this and it has been hugely successful in stimulating development of new technology Third we have to accelerate energy efficiency and clean power technologies by building up our research and development programmes to the levels they merit probably triple today’s levels This is the source of our long-term advantage I don’t like Keystone Extracting oil from tar sands leads to even higher carbon emissions than drilling and devastates the landscape But if approval is the price for a truly transformational clean energy policy I’m in You’re not going to move the vested interests without a trade but it has to be a smart trade This is a grand bargain on energy that would advance our growth national security and climate policy If paired with similar efforts by our Nato allies it would in time sharply reduce Putin’s ability to blackmail his neighbours using energy It would also protect Americans from price shocks as both the sun and the wind are free make our farmers our coastal cities and our public health system much more resilient and tilt our energy policy toward exploiting our advantage — technology — rather than oil I would hate to see Obama spend the next two and a half years just counting healthcaregov sign-ups He needs to recognise that Putin’s Crimea adventure has created the opportunity for a legacy project of moving America into a clean energy future — a move that would make us stronger Putin weaker and the world safer For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related News
