Basics of value investing

Jun 14, 2013

Here is today's recommended reading list from Equitymaster...

What is the amount of money that the US banks have deposited with the Fed? As per Fortune, the number has just crossed a trillion dollars! The Fed has been paying interest on these deposits to the banks. If the Fed were to decide to raise interest rates, it would have to increase what it pays the banks on those deposits, which means funneling more government money into the hands of the banks.

Between 1997 and now, corporate margins have dwindled from the early 30's to approximately 10% currently while corporate leverage has increased by 33% and Return on Equity has dropped by almost 35%. So, does China need to adopt a new growth model? Read on to find out... (Forbes)

Whether it is GDP growth or foreign reserves, debt or deficit. So, where does the Indian economy stand in terms of macroeconomic indicators vis-a-vis its Asian counterparts?
