Dear Niveshaks,

The gripping excitement of the presidential elections in the US finally came to an end with the re-election of Barack Obama to the White House for another 4 years. This has evoked mixed emotions from the governments and public worldwide. China would perhaps be the most happy with the outcome. The first major test of the President would be to avoid the fiscal cliff, the possibility of which looms large over the US. The focus has now shifted to the all-important once in a decade transition in most populous country on earth. The 18th National Congress of the Communist Party in China witnessed the nomination of a princeling, Xi Jingping as the next President of the country and Li Keqiang as the next premier. This high profile meeting also saw the number of Standing Politburo Committee members reduced to 7 from 9. The world has already started speculating the anticipated behavior from the next leader of the economic powerhouse.
In India, with most ministries acknowledging the need for a body to steer the large investments, the proposal for the National Investment Board is all set to be presented before the cabinet in the coming days. This institution will make India an easier place to do business. The rupee remained weak throughout the month hovering around Rs.55 per dollar. The country expects some major reforms from the Winter Session of the Parliament which started on November 22.
This issue brings to you some more interesting and insightful reads. The cover story this month focuses on the nomination of next president of China, Mr. Xi Jinping and discussions revolve around the possible trajectory of reforms and economic growth under his guidance. The article of the month explores the concept of restructuring of banks, a revival strategy for dwindling financial economy, which leads to the formation of a Good and a Bad Bank. Other articles in this issue focus on the need of diversification for Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Economies and Country Risk for Multinational Corporations. Lastly, the Classroom this month explores the topic of Phantom Stocks.
