While Abe and Kuroda-san would be jubilant, the powers that be in India are none too happy at the 44% devaluation in their currency in the last 2 years (and 17% collapse in the last 3 months) as capital floods out of the once potential growth-engine of the world economy. Accelerating in the last few days amid capital controls and gold importation bans, Taper-based carry unwinds appear to have exaggerated initial flows and driven the USD to over 63 Rupee (and all-time record low). India’s Sensex stock market is down 11% in the last 3 weeks to 11 month-lows (as fast money exits in a hurry) and the beleaguered bond market has imploded from a 7.1% yield in May for the 10Y to 9.25% now (its highest since 2001). Food prices rose at 9.5% YoY (vegetable +47% YoY) and fuel at 11.3% YoY sparking grave concerns across the nation of social unrest and bringing back memories of the 1990s – when the government was forced to ask the IMF for a loan to rebuild foreign reserves. Current efforts at stemming the tide have done little to stall the liquidity withdrawal and look to squeeze growth to a lowly 4.8% YoY.
