Interview with Harish Bijoor on Managing Troubled Times

March 2009 - By Dr. Nagendra V Chowdary

The crisis has been a wake-up call to the Indian consumer. The Indian consumer still has money in his hands, but this crisis has jolted everyone. Today, even if you have money in the bank, you want it kept right there. Cash is king. We live in a slightly more insecure economy today. Cash is there, but people will postpone purchases. Upgrades will not happen as soon as they used to happen. In purchases, downgrading will happen. Instead of that swank sedan, one might settle for a 2-box car.
