The rupee’s steep slide to the 79-to-a-dollar range is bound to impact importers, widen the current account deficit (CAD) and spur the value of India’s external debt.

Guests: Indranil Pan, Chief Economist at Yes Bank; Zico Dasgupta teaches Economics at Azim Premji University

Host: K. Bharat Kumar
