1. Football Economics
Argentina walks away with the bag & more
The victory is magnificent, especially for Lionel Messi, who was playing his last match in the jersey of Argentina. Apart from all the glory, the winning team will take home a whopping $42 million.
How do football clubs earn
The major source of revenue for the richest football club in the world Manchester City comes from broadcasting followed by commercials. Almost little to no revenue is earned on match day.
Argentina stocks shoot up
Argentina's bonds and shares rose, a day after the country's soccer World Cup victory, the S&P Merval (Argentina Companies Stock Index) rose 1.83% and analysis shows that winning the World Cup might increase GDP growth by at least 0.25% in the two subsequent quarters.
Our Opinion: Participation in worldwide organized events like sporting or any other form of activity that garners attention brings people together, and the country that steals the spotlight during such events tends to boost their economic growth as a result. India hosting the cricket world cup in 2023 (and hopefully winning!) will do wonders for the economy in the long run.
2. Indian Stock Market Revolution
SEBI tweaks share buyback rules
Companies have to now use 75% of the proceeds of the buyback undertaken through the stock exchange route from the existing minimum of 50%.
Plans to separate brokers from your money
If Sebi’s plans go ahead, brokers will only execute trades and no money from an investor’s bank account will go into a broker’s.
More time to trade
It was suggested that if the index trading time is extended till 8 pm, then the Indian market will be synced with European and US markets.
Our Opinion: These new rules can change the trading atmosphere and may increase the brokerage rates down the line as working capital requirements for the brokers will go up.
3. Goan Christmas
Goa airport nears record flights
The peak of Goa’s tourism is the week between Christmas and New Year when lakhs of travellers from across the country come to the state. Airfares to Goa have spiked three-fold.
Goa tourism & GDP
Goa Tourism contributes over 16% to the state GDP and supports over 40% of jobs and livelihood opportunities.
At current prices, Goa’s Gross State Domestic Product was Rs. 914.17 billion in 2022-23. The GSDP increased at a CAGR of 6.41% between 2016-17 and 2022-23.
New airport controversy
The new Mopa airport aims at enhancing Goa’s connectivity by air, by aiding the flow of civilian traffic to the state. Although there has been some controversy due to the deforestation caused by its construction.
Our Opinion: Goan tourism industry can be a great entry point for international tourists increasing India's reputation. This could help the overall tourism industry, boosting GDP growth further.
