Premier League newcomers Brighton and Hove Albion have adjusted well to the demands of the top flight and must continue fighting in their quest to stay up according to defender Liam Rosenior After two successive losses Brighton beat West Bromwich Albion and fellow promoted side Newcastle United to move to seven points from as many games “I think we’re on par If you look at what our ultimate aim is for the season it’s to stay up” the experienced Rosenior told the club website (wwwbrightonandhovealbioncom) ahead of their next game at home to Everton on Sunday “If we achieve our Premier League status for this time next season everyone would say it’s a decent season In order to do that you need to average around a point a game and that’s where we are at the moment” Everton are 16th in the

of the BRDC without playing an active role (Source: Reuters) Top News Silverstone’s departure from the Formula One calendar would be a “shocking loss” but it could clear the way for a street race in London Red Bull team boss Christian Horner said on Tuesday The capital is hosting a big Formula One promotional event on Wednesday ahead of the weekend’s British Grand Prix at Silverstone and the sport has long dreamed of racing there A decision by the British Racing Drivers’ Club (BRDC) on Tuesday to activate a break clause in Silverstone’s contract has revived such talk however fanciful it may sound to many observers “Silverstone is a wonderful track The teams and the drivers love driving there and (F1 owners) Liberty (Media) has made a commitment that there will be a British Grand Prix” Horner told reporters at the Red Bull factory “But with this London event happening tomorrow if that was a success – which hopefully it should be – one can imagine a London Grand Prix being pretty attractive to the Liberty guys “It would not be difficult to imagine Liberty thinking ‘why don’t we do a street race in the capital’” John Grant the BRDC chairman dismissed that idea “Most informed observers would say a London event is just not feasible – politically environmentally or commercially” he told Reuters Silverstone a former World War Two airfield hosted the first world championship grand prix in 1950 and with Monza Monaco and Spa forms part of a core group of historic tracks Brands Hatch Aintree and Donington Park have also hosted F1 in Britain but only Silverstone now has the necessary infrastructure Horner who is a member of the BRDC without playing an active role said the body had clearly got its maths wrong when it signed the original deal with former F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone and further mistakes were made along the way “They spent a fortune on the pits and they put them in the wrong place” he said “They have created a paddock with zero atmosphere at one of the most historic race tracks in the UK so there has been some serious misjudgement and management one would say” Silverstone’s future has long been clouded with Ecclestone regularly berating the BRDC in the past but Horner expressed amazement that a contract that was secured with so much sweat had been broken “It would be shocking to lose Silverstone from the calendar It would be even more shocking to lose a British GP when you consider 80 per cent of the teams are based within the UK and how much the UK contributes to Formula One” he said For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Bibek Debroy | Published: April 23 2015 12:00 am Policies that distort costs on inputs and thereby distort resource allocation and input choices are undesirable Related News Employment and unemployment figures still come from the 68th round of the NSS (National Sample Survey) that is 2011-12 The NSS has different ways of defining and measuring employment and workforce — usual status current daily status and current weekly status It doesn’t matter which is used Two conclusions are obvious First especially among women work participation rates are low — for instance World Bank data show an Indian female work participation rate of 27 compared to 64 in China; and second not only does low growth mean low employment generation but even when growth picks up jobs don’t seem to be created For instance one can compare the employment elasticity of growth between 1999-2000 and 2004-05 with a decline in that elasticity thereafter While growth is necessary to create jobs growth alone will presumably not solve the problem Why is the employment elasticity of growth low subject to the qualification that this also depends on the composition of growth A standard answer has been labour laws especially in the organised sector Both expressions “labour laws” and the “unorganised sector” should be used with caution There are 50-plus Union-level statutes that directly have something to do with labour There are also many state-level rules A standard definition of “organised” is the application of the Factories Act But there aren’t two neat binary worlds of organised and unorganised Some of those 50-plus labour laws also apply to the unorganised sector and there are informal contracts within the organised sector With that Factories Act definition the Economic Survey tells us employment in the organised sector (in 2012) is 296 million 12 million private and the rest public There is an entirely valid argument that labour laws in the organised sector are rigid thereby stimulating artificial capital intensity By this statement one usually means statutes on industrial relations — the Industrial Disputes Act (IDA) the Contract Labour Act and the Trade Unions Act — though it can also mean compliance costs associated with the so-called inspector raj which is pertinent too for other statutes and occasionally applies to the unorganised sector Assuming labour and capital can be substituted in relative price comparisons between labour and capital this increases costs of labour interpreted as more than narrow wage costs What has happened to that cost of labour post-1991 I mean the absolute cost not the relative one Sure there are occasional complaints about upward wage pressures lack of skills and labour shortages (reflected in higher wages) But I suspect these are still sector-specific and region-specific complaints (Illustration by: C R Sasikumar) Still compliance costs associated with labour laws should also have declined Several states have simpler procedures now and the implementation of labour laws is mostly a state subject The Union government has introduced elements like self-certification and the unification of forms Within the IDA permissions are more readily available When were labour laws tightened If you are obsessed with the IDA you will probably pick 1976 (when Chapter V-B was introduced) or 1982-84 (when the threshold of Chapter V-B was changed) Nineteen seventy six or 1982-84 certainly introduced rigidities and those rigidities need relaxing But has that rigidity become worse post-1991 Not necessarily A capital/ labour choice is based on relative costs of inputs not just absolute costs of labour With the old GDP series high growth years were roughly between 2003-04 and 2007-09 One explanation for high growth is the reduced cost of capital however defined — import duties external commercial borrowings domestic costs of debt and equity Thus the absolute cost of capital declined reduced the relative cost of capital pushed up the relative cost of labour and drove further capital intensity However there is a more interesting question Do labour laws alone distort resource allocation Consider policies on capital The budget papers have a revenue foregone statement In 2014-15 aggregate tax exemptions divided into various categories amounted to Rs 486452 crore There are direct tax exemption components for the corporate sector and unincorporated enterprises If you scrutinise these you will find several for the use of capital There are instances from indirect tax exemptions too What else is stuff like accelerated depreciation Can you think of a single incentive linked to the use of labour Other than tax exemptions being undesirable on other counts this too distorts choice across inputs I can also throw in incentives not necessarily fiscal on the use of land Why should we be surprised at low employment elasticity Take the definition of MSME (micro small and medium enterprises) Whether manufacturing or services this is completely based on investments that is capital It has nothing to do with labour or employment While the growth theory has evolved and often has human capital built into it the popular discourse is often based on Harrod-Domar If the investment rate is 32 per cent and the Icor (incremental capital/ output ratio) is 5 you will get a growth rate of 64 per cent and so on How many times have you seen a discussion that says what the growth rate will be if the female work participation rate increases Or alternatively what it will be if mortality and morbidity indicators or skill indicators improve I wonder if this occurs because the roots of the discourse originate in countries that possess a different set of relative factor endowments It is a plausible proposition But my limited point is that in discussing the low employment elasticity of growth let us not look only at labour market policies A factor input choice to the extent inputs are substitutable is a function of relative prices Policies that distort costs on inputs and thereby distort resource allocation and input choices are undesirable Just as they are undesirable for labour they are undesirable for capital and land too But oddly enough the capital distortion argument is not articulated as much as the labour distortion one If incentives are to be used let us encourage the use of the input India is relatively better endowed with not the one India is relatively scarce in The writer is member Niti Aayog Views are personal For

existthey have to be constructed on a strong cricket base The great leagues of the world have their share of drama and scandal around them but they are remembered by the quality of the action they produced The tabloid reporters swarm around but the serious writers find it worth their while too; irrelevant starlets seek to worm their way in but the superstars play on the field too The cricket was very good this yearit began acquiring a rhythm of its ownbut it must necessarily be seen as a distinct entity not asdepending on which way you look at ita glamourous or a scheming cousin of the traditional game And it will be a challenge for the IPL: to keep an increasing tribe of wannabes at arms length and prevent them from hijacking the image of a sporting contest The IPL also needs to be an indicator of Indias cricketing depthfor it allows many young playerssome completely unknownto play on the big stage The Ranji Trophy should do that toobut it doesnt pit a young man against an international star; it cannot throw up comparisonscontrasts So who caught the eye in this years IPL There were four young men among the top 20 batsmen and these are people who we should be talking a bit more about At No 3 was Shikhar Dhawan who has promised much over the years but has rarely embraced consistency the one quality that separates the best from those that occasionally flash by But he is a powerful batsmanand if he can just be a bit more involved in the deep can become a far better fielder If you pick horses for coursesand in T20 you musthe has to be in a short list As indeed should Ajinkya Rahane who came in at number 4 For two or three years there was a feeling that he wasnt cut out for instant cricketbut he has adapted brilliantly and if anythingneeds to be careful not to allow this style to infect his chances in the longer versions which he seems more naturally cut out for For Rahanemanaging different formats will be a challenge but it is one only the best are entitled to have Ambati Rayudu was down at number 19possibly because of his batting positionbut he enhanced his reputation For some reason Indian cricket doesnt seem too inclined to embrace him and surely a place had to be found for him on the India A tour If Rayudus time has to be nowthere is another whose time may well come if he continues his impressive progress Like Rahane who got a whole tournament to play in with the RoyalsMandeep Singh benefitted from being in a team with fewer stars He is another one the selectors should be jotting down in their little diary Mayank Agarwal and Naman Ojha had their moments Agarwal is a clean hitter but I suspect he needs another dimension to his game while Ojha seems a fair contender with the likes of Dinesh Karthik and Uthappa for a second wicket keeper slot for the World T20 I wish we could have seen more of Wriddhiman Saha and it might be in his interests to be loaned to another team for young talent must play (Talking of whichit is a good idea to introduce the concept of loaning in the IPL) Umesh Yadav looked very impressive because he has pacebut to me there were two other bowlers who demanded attention One of them was Parwinder Awana whoby some power known or otherwisehas to be on that A tour of the West Indies It would be criminal to deny him that experience and the opportunity to showcase himself And the every smiling

“Haraamkhor” Shweta says she is aware of the perception of her being a ‘serious actress’ but will not do conventional heroine roles to break out of the image “I get approached by people describing the

sake of it “I refuse to settle for something which doesn’t challenge me I don’t mind doing a one-scene or one-line film but it needs to be impactful” Shweta told PTI The actress feels the reason for the absence of strong women characters is the lack of female writers in Bollywood “We can count on our fingers the number of women-centric works we have done How many female writers do we have as compared to male writers “That change needs to happen then there will be more stories about women I think that’s the main reason It’s sad but true” When asked why there are fewer projects with women
