Universal Basic Income (UBI)

As the devastating wave of Covid-19 pandemic hit India, the country went into abruptly imposed lockdowns, the Indian economy suffered a severe demand shock and the GDP contracted. Amidst all the chaos, several economists tirelessly suggested putting money in the hands of people, unconditionally.

You don’t must have a totally new, imaginative plan to prevail as a start-up. Facebook wasn’t the principal web-based media website and Google wasn’t the main web index. It isn’t tied in with being the main startup with the thought, it’s tied in with improving and offering more benefit.

Business Cycle

Modern industrial economies experience significant swings in economic activity. In some years, most industries are booming and unemployment is low; in other years, most industries are operating well below capacity and unemployment is high. Periods of economic prosperity are typically called expansions or booms; periods of economic decline are called recessions or depressions. The combination of expansions and recessions, the ebb and flow of economic activity, is called the business cycle.

Sustainable Environment Models for Development

It hasn’t come to a full circle yet….we haven’t reached safe shores yet! But, where our ship has sailed until now is a place, or is a period which may define the future generations of mankind. Negative has become the new positive, doctors have become the new avengers and the masks too are no less than a sixth sense organ! So all of this implies that from now on, change is the only constant and we need to evolve our lifestyles and methodologies to form a sustainable and enjoyable world!
