spending to get his fiscal numbers rightas his colleague across Raisina Hill does his best to maintain Indias external profile while dealing with spending cuts Through the 1990s and the 2000sas its economy grew and the governments fiscal capacity improvedIndia too derived strategic and foreign policy benefits from its improved economic performance Indias defence spending increased and its strategic sight was set higher The widening global footprint of Indian businessa consequence of a more open and robust economyalso helped Support for India grewfor exampleeven in the US Congressas more and more congressmen and senators voted in favour of India on issues relating to Indias national security While in the 1970s and 1980sIndias finance minister would travel to Western capitals in search of aid and the external affairs minister would go around lecturing the worldin the 2000sIndias finance and foreign ministers travelled to sell Brand India India became more expansive in its relations with its own neighbours and declared a new policy of unilateral trade liberalisation in favour of less developed countries Indias south-south trade increased as trades share in the GDP went up Indias foreign aid budget too increased and an entire new bureaucracy was created to pursue tradeaid and investment policies aimed at winning friends and influencing people I put together a series of essays I had written in the 1990s and early 2000s on this theme in a book entitled The Strategic Consequences of Indias Economic Performance (Academic Foundation2006) It should be obvious that those consequences were beneficial If India gained in global stature and influence thanks to its improved economic performance and greater opennessthe question arises if India has lost some of this sheen due to its reduced economic performance in recent months The answer is yes It has been a long time since an Indian finance minister has had to undertake roadshows around the world to attract investment Faced with an unacceptably high current account deficit67 per cent of gross domestic product (GDP)and worried about the potential consequences of a sovereign ratings downgrade if his fiscal numbers do not improveChidambaram has had to travel to TokyoHong KongSingaporeLondonNew York and Toronto in search of investors Perhaps on his way back homehe should consider stopping in DubaiAbu

of Indian origin willing to buy into his Resurgent India Bonds Todaythe job is proving tougher While Western powers and Japan are more friendly towards India than they were in the late-1980s or even late-1990smany of them are themselves in deep financial trouble and will not loosen the purse strings readily unless there is something in it for them Given this domestic fiscal and external economic profileit is not surprising that India baulked at the idea of increasing its share for the setting up of a BRICS Development Bank from $10 billion to $20 billion The idea itself was the product of the days of bravadobluff and bluster at the finance ministry during the fiscally irresponsible tenure of Chidambarams predecessor But two years agowhen the idea was proposed by Indiathe country was still not seen as a potential applicant for another loan from the International Monetary Fund Todayeven a responsible financial newspaper like Business Standard has editorially suggested that India may have to go to the IMF to seek financial support Can a country seeking support from the Bretton Woods sisters really be expected to put more money into a rival upstart The strategic consequencesif you

has walked his talkthat isreduced the fiscal and current account deficitsand helped step up investments at homehe would want Indias foreign policy managers to tread carefully and rub no one on the
