Will GST be a game changer or name changer?

Read on to know more. (Economist)

Trying times for Indian passenger cars
The Indian passenger car industry has been stumbling back to recovery after a drop in sales for the first time in 2013-14. However good times are still a distant dream. This is because the shelf life of novelty factor in cars has reduced from 5-7 years to 1.5-2 years. While car manufactures cannot afford to avoid launching cars with novel features, the additional cost burden is compressing return ratios as the break-even volumes are getting difficult to meet. Read on to know their woes. (Livemint)
