armour “You have to keep their best players under control you can’t just try and take the ball off them because they are much better in possession now and when they don’t have it they are still very dangerous on the counter-attack” added Llorente who has also played for Athletic Bilbao Sevilla Swansea City and the Spanish national team “Madrid can kill you off easily because they have more

per cent a year a critical threshold Harvard economists Lant Pritchett and Larry Summers report that countries rarely grow much faster than the world economy for extended periods They suggest that India could enter a phase with GDP growth stuck in the 3 to 5 per cent a year range Maintaining prolonged high growth rates is unusual because it requires uninterrupted forward-looking investment in

But the stranglehold of corruption stands a real chance of being weakened Indias greatest strength and achievement is its democracy And while democracy is messy and may get messierit is democracy that must be leveraged for economic and social progress The international evidence is clear: in the long rungenuine democracy and economic welfare reinforce each other The promise lies not in the AAP scaling up to the national level but in the emergence of AAPs across the country The real promise lies in the possibility of political entrepreneurship and the electorate leading a transformation of politicswhether through insurgent political movements or pressures to reform old parties It lies in the competition for ideas to reset the governance structure India cannot be governed from the Centre Economic reform and effective service delivery will only occur with meaningful political and fiscal decentralisation to state and local governmentssupported by administrative reform This needs to be done under the watchful eyes of local residents who can demand tangible accountability through electoral and direct measures Only then will the space reopen for committed economic entrepreneurship And
