Inflation, consumer prices (annual %), India

This graph reflects the annual percentage change to the price of products and services. We can see here that despite impressive GDP growth, India has not been immune to the global financial crisis, with inflation increasing drastically from 3.68 per cent in 2001 to just under 12 per cent in 2010. High inflation makes it difficult for the central bank to keep interest unchanged and has an adverse impact on consumer demand.

The NS Podcast #176: Younge, guns and identity politics

The New Statesman podcast.

Helen and Stephen are joined by author and editor-at-large for the Guardian, Gary Younge, to discuss the findings of his new book: Another Day in the Death of America.

Seven kids die every day from gun violence in the US yet very few make the national news. Is there any way to stop Americans becoming inured to the bloodshed? The enraging, incredibly sad and sometimes peculiarly funny stories of ten kids on one unremarkable Saturday attempt to change that trend.

(Helen Lewis, Stephen Bush, Gary Younge).
