The Federal Reserve’s hint at unwinding quantitative easing (QE) early in the year caused the Indian rupee to fluctuate wildly; it hit an all-time low against the US dollar in August. This issue contains a special report on the causes and consequences of the rupee volatility, including an interview with the treasury team at Larsen & Toubro, a technology, engineering, construction and manufacturing company based in Mumbai.

Export orders are expected to decline as western nations deleverage their debt obligations. This poses a challenge to China’s export-orientated economy. In particular, the economic crisis in Europe has underlined the need for government authorities to wean the Asian tiger’s dependence away from export-orientated industries. Instead, China hopes to boost domestic demand by cultivating a more consumption-driven approach to economic growth.
