India crisis of competitiveness (Column: Active Voice)
The title of this article draws from a section in the World Economic Forum's Global Competitiveness Report 2014-15 that looks at the reasons for India's Lucifer like fall from 48 in 2007-08 to 71. It is the worst rank in the BRICS economies (Brazil-57th, Russian Federation-53rd, China-28th, South Africa-56th). Last year, one of the authors of this piece had written an article in which he talked about India being at a stage where there is the clear and present danger of losing its competitiveness. India's fall is despite the fact that the number of economies in this year's ranking (144 countries) is lesser than last year's 148 countries considered for the report.
