The Indian Economic  
Scan-shot

August

2021


Hello,
The economic environment continues to vacillate between the optimistic and the cataclysmic, depending on where one stands! Ergo, keeping an eye on important macro-economic indices is a critical prologue to business decision and, often, an opportunity tracker. The August 2021 monthly update has a fair amount of good news on GST collections, the Manufacturing PMI and the dropping unemployment numbers. The consumer confidence score seems to have taken a hit-but a turnaround is awaited.
Happy scanning!
