Makale özeti ve diğer detaylar.
In 2008 the world economy landed itself in the midst of the most severe financial recession which originated in the developed countries and spread to the developing countries which were hit hard through capital reversals, rising borrowing costs, collapsing world trade and commodity prices, and subsiding remittances. India's engagement with the global economy became deeper from the 1990s and this made it inevitable to be affected by the global meltdown. This paper attempts to analyze the impact of the global recession on the external sector of the Indian economy. A pre and post recession (2008) analysis is undertaken to see the impact on trade, capital flows, exchange rates and foreign exchange reserves and external debt. The analysis reveals that while India was adversely impacted due to the slowdown in trade, capital flows and outsourcing; the impact has not been as much as in many other Asian economies. The capital flows were soon back, as India seemed like a save haven for funds with reasonable growth and interest rates. The Indian banking and regulatory system has been credited for following prudential norms and India's huge domestic market and fiscal stimulus have got the economy almost back on track with growth rates looking up again.
