Working independently, they have addressed "some of our time's most basic and pressing questions about how we create long-term sustained and sustainable growth," the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said in a statement. Nordhaus is a professor at Yale University. Romer is a former World Bank chief economist now at New York University's Stern School of Business. The academy said their models, both developed in the 1990s, have "signiﬁcantly broadened the scope of economic analysis". The prize announcement came as the UN warned in a landmark report that an "unprecedented" transformation of society and the world economy was needed to avoid global climate chaos.

Be it Telugu, Hindi, English, language is no barrier for him to leave everyone in awe with his oratory skills. His 51-minute speech that was packed with anecdotes, stories and erudition was a treat for everyone’s ears. Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu, who kicked off the yearlong Diamond Jubilee ﬁesta of the National Institute of Technology (NIT) here on Monday, was at his prosodic best. It is difficult to keep audience in good spirit for the orators especially when they are delivering a keynote address that interspersed with nature, culture, technology and what not. But it’s child’s play for someone like Venkaiah Naidu who can deal any subject with deft touch. His quips such as “I am retired from politics but not tired of public life” while stating that onus is on institutes like NIT to come up with ideas that tackle unemployment problem as it’s not realistically possible for the governments to provide a job each too the households. “The only way we are left with is reform, perform and transform,” he states, further exhorting the youths to ﬁnd solutions to curb several social maladies such as untouchability, tax evasion etc haunting the nation. “Temporary pain – long-term gain,” he said, referring to the Goods and Service Tax (GST).

The hiccups can be sorted out by the political parties, he said, stating that every reform will pose some problem initially. “Someone asked me that demonetisation is causing problems.

It’s up to you to choose whether you want to fall or your hair should fall,” the Vice-President said, setting the audience into loud laughter. Continued on Page 4 the parties.
