Thereforeany increase in house prices ends up being merely a transfer from a younger generation to an older one and a transfer of wealth and resources from those who currently dont own housing to those who do Neither is optimal from a policymakers perspectiveespecially if the policymaker is concerned about income inequality It is possibleindeed expectedthat the budget will need to include measures to stimulate the housing sector Howeverthe analysis I have laid out means that those measures should be focused specifically on first-time buyers and on housing development An across-the-board measurelike reducing interest rates or taxes on all housingmight well turn out to be seriously counter-productiveas it would incentivise existing home owners to take on more debtand thus push house prices up further with little net gain to the economy The possibility that returns in the housing sector arefrom an aggregate national point of viewmerely nominal gainshas an additional implication We know that India faces a shortage of funding for critical areas of the real economy like infrastructure Given the funding that we havewe therefore need to develop our equity and bond markets and not divert resources and valuable banking balance-sheet space to housing which is not directly productive in this case In the medium termthe government could look to check house price growth by disallowing the ballooning of housing-related credit on banks books It is also worth bearing in mind that equity and bond markets give investors much greater liquidity compared to housing There isit is trueat least one benefit from higher house prices: people feel richer the more their house is worthand the resulting wealth effect makes them spend more This ishoweveronly effective in the short term In the long termthe wealth effect is outweighed by the dysfunctionality it brings to the economy and financial system And these distortions will become that much more difficult to undo as political constituencies become more entrenched The Indian economy and financial system would then risk evolving into the model where the banking system became heavily dependent on asset price rises and illusory profits rather than on productive lending to the real economy Of coursethe argument need not be just an economic one Those concerned about cultural heritage could make the argument that a spike in house prices such as in Bombay for example has led to a surge in hastily-erected (and unsafe) structures and resulted in once-charming neighbourhoods losing their character and increasingly taking on a pockmarked and dishevelled appearance The social and judicial ramifications are also significant Rising property prices have spawned disputes as families squabble over property which in turn has helped to clog up the judicial system; a large proportion of the 40-lakh judicial case backlog is property-related All of the above is not to argue against any house price rises whatsoever Long-term home owners have little to fear an economy growing at a nominal rate of around 15 per cent will always see increases in property prices For its partthe government should know that pushing across-the-board lower home loans is playing with fire: theres little doubt that it will cause owners to borrow moreand push prices up to unsustainable levels with all the negative ramifications thats brought to the rest of the world The writer is a Delhi-based strategic analyst [email protected]

(Source: AP) Top News LeBron James isn’t changing his game Tyronn Lue isn’t changing his lineup The Cavaliers aren’t slowing down Defiant in the face of a 2-0 deficit to the postseason-perfect Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals the defending champions are sticking with their plan They may have no choice Back home after being outrun and outgunned by the Warriors who won Games 1 and 2 at Oracle Arena by a combined 41 points the Cavs find themselves in the same predicament they were in last year This time though the hole feels deeper mostly because Kevin Durant is now leading a team seeking revenge after blowing a 3-1 lead to Cleveland in last year’s Finals To this point chapter three of Cleveland vs Golden State a Finals dubbed “The Three-Match” has been a mismatch Still Lue the Cavs’ cool-under-pressure coach believes his team can equal the Warriors’ frenetic pace and flip the script as it did in 2016 “We just have to take care of the basketball” Lue said Tuesday after the Cavs practiced at Quicken Loans Arena “I think taking good shots when we’re playing with pace and not turning the basketball over letting them get out in transition So that’s our game We’re not going to change our game because of who we’re playing And I’m confident that we can play that way and we did it last year “A lot of people said we couldn’t But that’s our game That’s who we are And we’re not going to change just because we’re playing Golden State” One of the options Lue has heading into Wednesday’s Game 3 is to bench struggling starting guard JR Smith for Iman Shumpert who played well defensively in Game 2 but wore himself out guarding Durant and needed IV fluids afterward Smith drained a 3-pointer for the series’ first basket but hasn’t scored since He’s just 1 of 6 from the field and for some strange reason one of the game’s most confident shooters has been hesitant to let his jumper fly Lue though is staying with Smith who said his wife Jewel offered advice on how to end his slump “She had a great idea for me” he said “She told me every time I touch it shoot it” That’s how the Warriors seem to be playing Golden State’s break-neck speed on offense has been a sight to behold With unmatched firepower the Warriors are pushing the pace and the Cavaliers to exhaustion According to ESPN’s research the pace of play in the first two games was faster than in any of James’ previous 212 career postseason games And the first quarter in which the Warriors outscored the Cavs 40-34 and the teams combined for 130 possessions was the fastest James’ career regular or postseason spanning 5100 quarters It’s no wonder James who has been his typically dominant self averaging 285 points 13 rebounds and 11 assists stopped attacking in the second half He was gassed and the Cavs couldn’t keep up as the Warriors scored 132 despite 20 turnovers Cleveland prefers to play at a high tempo as well and while that would seem to play into a trap with Golden State Lue and James were adamant the Cavs aren’t pumping their brakes “That’s not our game We don’t play slowdown basketball” James said “We play at our pace We play our game We got to this point playing our way We have won a lot of games playing the way we play so we’re not going to change” However what has to change is production from Cleveland’s role players James Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love are doing their part but Cleveland’s Big 3 isn’t getting enough support Tristan Thompson has been neutralized as the Warriors are devoting multiple players to keep Cleveland’s relentless rebounder off the boards Sharpshooter Kyle Korver is just 1 of 6 on 3s backup point guard Deron Williams is scoreless in 33 minutes and Richard Jefferson two weeks shy of his 37th birthday is the only reserve contributing more than expected In real time Cleveland’s two losses in Oakland looked lopsided but Irving said the tape revealed some positives “When you watch it it doesn’t necessarily seem as bad because you understand that the things that you can’t control” he said “They’re just kind of boneheaded plays that you are just like `Oh man we can be better’ Whether they’re speeding us up or whether they’re getting in our chest or challenging us we need to hit back And it’s just as simple as that” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Shruti Dhapola | New Delhi | Updated:
