From the Editors’ Desk,

t gives us great pleasure to pen down the editorial for the second issue of Arthaarth for two particular reasons. First, a brilliant compendium of articles that forms the contents of this issue of Arthaarth, which have been authored to perfection. They have truly brought out the intricacies of the topics involved. Second, with which we emotionally connect to, is the launch of Arthaarth at the first finance symposium of IIM Udaipur, Arth-Samvaad 2013. The symposium would bring together incumbents from the domain of finance to speak on the topic “Are Indian businesses decoupled from the rest of the world”. The symposium would also see teams from premier B-schools across the country compete for the ArthSamvaad Presentation Challenge. Dare we say, times of trouble loom large on many sectors and firms around the world, and an incomplete understanding of decoupling would only make matters worse!

The article on “The Sahara Way of doing Things” takes a peek into the Sahara debacle and points to failures in the regulatory framework. The cover article, creatively titled as “The Bull and Bear debate over the Dragon”, looks at the impact of slowdown on the land of dragons, China. The implications of coupling of growth in nations come out strong and the article explores the future outlook for China and other countries, which brings us to the third article. “Credit Ratings of Nations: Are they Reliable?” provides a snapshot of how the risk of a country is evaluated by premier rating agencies across the world, and the various parameters used by these agencies. The article also looks at the efficacy of these ratings, and their inherent flaws. “Air India: Quest to save the sinking ship” tries to explore the future strategy of Air India, one of the heavily cash-strapped airlines in India. The article highlights the chronology of events that Air India has been through, which is pivotal to understanding the current situation of the airlines industry.

The next section brings back Arthaarth’s very own Money Ratnam, the character who simplifies finance. In this superhero edition, “What’s on your mind - split or bonus?” Money Ratnam explains the differences between Stock Splits and Bonus Shares, and their significance to the stockholder. For our Face2Face series, we have Mr. Sanjay Anandram, a venture capitalist, entrepreneur and founder of Jumpstart VC Fund, who talks to Finomina about the “VC industry in India”, and how does the real world scenario look like. This issue of Arthaarth is truly a collector’s edition, with a range of contemporary topics discussed and...
