Impact of Growth and Trade on Environment - Evidence from India

The Environment -Development syndrome has been the major concern of developing countries like India. The developing countries being disenchanted by the unforeseen consequences brought forth by the process of development have been in a dilemma to choose between development and environmental protection. It would obviously be absurd to advice the developing countries to stop all industrialisation for the sake of the environment. The standard of living and standard of life simultaneously are the pre-requisites for humanity to survive. While development provides the former, the latter rests on the environment. It has been a tough trade-off decision between economic growth and environmental protection especially in developing countries. Development per se, is not always the cause of environmental degradation. Rather, there are certain kinds of mindless development strategies that deteriorate the environment and these need to be curbed and changed. As a result there is a growing recognition that the overall goals of environment and development are not in conflict but are indeed the same.

Role of Trust in bank lending

Banks in India operate in a very different lending environment as compared to western banks. The government owns many banks in India and state intervention in bank lending is considerable in India. Conventional instrument based methods of risk evaluation have limited use for banks in India. This book uses a social risk evaluation process based on the notion of social capital and trust to examine the structure and working of Indian bank branches. The role of trust in the relationship between branch managers and loan officers is critically studied. A framework of trust between branch managers and loan officers is developed. According to this framework, a branch manager and a loan officer develop a trusting relationship because both branch manager and loan officer have incentive to trust each other due to risk in lending. Trust between branch managers and loan officers of bank branches depends on seven characteristics of trust. Trust contributes significantly to the improvement of lending performance of bank branches in India. The conclusions arrived in this study have important implications for the management of banks.
