This Is What You Need To Understand About India Ahead Of The Upcoming Election

Every week, hosts Joe Weisenthal and Tracy Alloway take you on a not-so-random walk through hot topics in markets, finance and economics.

India is going to have a general election in the months ahead, and so it's important to understand the state of the economy, and what incumbent Prime Minister Narendra Modi has accomplished during his five years in office. On this week's episode, we talk to two experts on the Indian economy: Srinivas Thiruvadanthai of the Jerome Levy Forecasting Center and Mayank Seksaria of Macro Risk Advisors about how to understand the Indian economy and what to watch for.
