Impact of Higher Interest rates.

Amrit Jhita's curator insight, February 23, 2014 8:22 AM

This short video explains how an increase in interest rates in India has slowed down economic growth over the past two years, as less people are able and willing to borrow money either for consumption (by households) or investment (by firms). However, the argument for raising interest rates is a valid one. The rise is necessary to help lower inflation, in order for prices of goods and services to decrease, all in the hope to improve consumer welfare. It's a tricky balancing act for this economic giant.
