accounting is done at current or nominal prices and then deflated to get the constant or real numbers (Source: Express file photo) Top News The new series of national accounts was introduced in January 2015 The switch wasn’t overnight and impromptu — it had been contemplated since 2008 There were several sub-committees chaired by people such as K Sundaram S Mahendra Dev B N Goldar A C Kulshreshtha and A K Adhikari In national income accounting these gentlemen (there is no lady in the list) possess considerable expertise and are known and respected names Subject to the constraints on data availability a problem incapable of instant coffee-like resolution this switch was approved and recommended by them But no matter It is a sign of how important the economy has become that every person is obsessed with the GDP numbers and has become an expert on national income accounting This is no different from every person even if he/she has never touched a bat or a ball in his/her life pretending to know better than MS Dhoni or Virat Kohli Therefore despite this being a newspaper one is entitled to write: GDP = GVA + taxes – subsidies (GDP means gross domestic product and GVA means gross value added) The GVA is defined as the value of output minus intermediate consumption (value of inputs) Note that national income accounting is done at current or nominal prices and then deflated to get the constant or real numbers In those current prices the Central Statistical Office told us the GDP increased by 108 per cent in 2014-15 and 87 per cent in 2015-16 Had there been a clamour for “reforms” so that growth is higher I would have understood But no there is a clamour that these numbers smell like the fish sold by Unhygienix The evidence given is of dipstick variety “Over dinner I spoke to 10 industrialists and none of them say their value of production has increased” First even if the value of production hasn’t increased the GDP can increase if taxes increase and/or if subsidies decline Second even if the value of production hasn’t increased the GVA and GDP can increase if the value of inputs declines If one has imbibed that identity and many critics evidently haven’t this is simple logic If one points a finger on the basis of the value of production alone one needs a crash course in national income accounting Third those 10 “industrialists” lead to a warped view Simplifying a bit under the old series production data was from the annual survey of industries Simplifying a bit again under the new series it comes from the ministry of corporate affairs database The new database is broader covers services better and includes smaller enterprises Looking only towards large “industrialists” or “manufacturers” is a bit like wearing an eye-patch No one denies the expenditure approach is unsatisfactory more so if one uses quarterly rather than annual numbers There too there is an identity and there too one needs to take off the eye-patch Low growth in exports can be more than neutralised by low growth in imports Low growth in government final consumption expenditure can be more than neutralised by the high growth in private final consumption expenditure There are several components in the identity and focusing on just one while forgetting the others is what logic calls a fallacy of composition or applying the part to the whole Let’s now move to the evidence of the slapstick variety I spoke to 10 individuals and they don’t think their income grew by 87 per cent They don’t feel good Other than the limited nature of such sampling this is subject to what economists call “money illusion” Most individuals suffer from the myopia of thinking in nominal terms rather than in real terms Though initially computed in current prices or nominal terms the GDP numbers are then reduced to constant prices or real terms Thus the real growth was 72 per cent in 2014-15 and 76 per cent in 2015-16 In 2015-16 the differential between nominal and real was 11 per cent a measure of inflation Do you feel better with 87 per cent nominal growth and 11 per cent inflation or do you feel better with 126 per cent nominal growth and 5 per cent inflation Most individuals opt for the latter and that’s the problem with feelers — money illusion Does this mean all is well No there are issues with the GDP deflator the inflation indicator used to move from the nominal GDP estimate to the real one I don’t think we will solve this until we have a proper producer price index (PPI) A few critics have constructed their own GDP deflators (other combinations of the WPI CPI and other weights) But these aren’t superior to what the CSO does not until we solve the data constraints Also the question mark is about the real not nominal growth There have always been data issues But since its establishment in 1951 I don’t think the CSO has ever willfully resorted to statistical legerdemain Nor has it now To suggest otherwise one needs to presume this grand design of jugglery started circa 2008 This entire episode reminds me of a debate between Bertrand Russell and one of the followers of Archbishop James Ussher who computed that the world had been created in 4004 BC When Russell mentioned fossils the follower retorted that these had been placed in the world to test our faith There is no logical way to refute this argument Similarly one can respond to specific criticism and the only valid one is on the deflator spliced with the argument about higher growth being desirable However if there are generalised assertions about the CSO’s skulduggery that’s the realm of faith and there is no logical way to refute that The writer is member Niti Aayog Views are personal For all the latest Opinion News download Indian
