Economics Seminar Series: Seminar 5 "Policy Challenges in Emerging Market Economies (EMEs) in the wake of Global Financial Crisis"

Venue : L-103, TERI University
Date : 12 April 2017

Summary

Speaker: Dr. Ananya Ghosh Dastidar, Department of Business Economics, University of Delhi South Campus

This paper examines the problems of growth and macro-management facing emerging market economies in the aftermath of the recent global financial crisis and assesses the main challenges for policy in this context. It questions the relevance of development strategies based on export markets at the current conjuncture and emphasizes the importance of fostering growth in and strategizing access to domestic markets. The paper contends that, going forward, a key challenge for EMEs would be to create adequate policy space for accommodating the increasingly complex interactions between the markets for real and financial assets and their implications for the real economy. This calls for a creative yet pragmatic approach to policy making that strikes the right balance, especially between the opposing forces of state intervention and market orientation.

Short-Term Training programme on Data Science Applications for Sustainability

Venue : TERI University
Date : 10-12 July 2017

Summary

With the concept of a digital world taking precedence, our lives are being incessantly mapped and recorded in the digital realm. This, among other things, has led to availability of plethora of data that needs to be analysed in order to discover hidden patterns that are far from random. This is done through the field of Data Science. There are several definitions of data science available. Data science is considered to be an amalgamation of statistics, computer science, and application in various sectors. Large datasets of spatial and temporal information are assembled and manipulated in order to improve the understanding and management of complex systems. At its core, data science involves assemblage, management, and analysis of large spatio-temporal datasets for their translation into information that can eventually be used by decision makers for policymaking. Although data science is used in different domains, such as marketing, management, natural resource management, climate change studies, finances, development economics, among many others, an understanding of connection between the field of data science and sustainability is still limited.

Both the field of sustainability and data science being fairly new fields, there are a limited amount of academic resources that have been written about synergy between the two topics. A few academicians and professionals, however, are already working in data science applications for sustainability. Keeping this in mind, there is a need to strengthen the knowledge base by conducting capacity-building training programmes. The application of data science on sustainability can be examined through the triple bottom line/pillars (environment, social, and economic) perspectives.
