First of all thank u and unacademy for bringing this course. As of the way this course is evolving in quality is highly commendable. I would like to share my personal experience that when I used to read and make notes myself I used to end up either making notes from prelims point of view or mains and if both was fulfilled then time was compromised. I think this course is helping me to solve this problem of mine. Please don't reduce the content. Although you may try to explain more if time permits u. Respect your daily effort alot. Thanks.

  5. READ- OTHER INTERESTING ARTICLES o LiveMint-Subhas Chandra Bose: The leading nationalist (GS-1) o The Hindu:- Lift the veil of secrecy (GS-3)

  6. TH: NAVIGATING A TRUMPIAN WORLD GS-2 o Elevation of Trump to position of president is not a part of normal politics. He gained this position by posting himself as an outsider to the system and railed against the "establishment" , represented by Washington. His "America first slogan had been utilised in some form in past but his plank was nationalism not role of America in World Order as it used to be in past. His campaign rhetoric was full of nationalism raised through dubious, false but emotionally charged speeches. o He claimed that US benefited foreign industry rather American industry. But truth is that it is Corporate America was never richer before and remains beneficiary as well as driver of globalisation. It is American worker who suffered the most at expense of corporate America US defence budget $600 billion,- budget of next 6 countries. Why so? America had over stretched itself because of its engagement in different regions. This led to decrease in social spending and unrest in form of racial attacks and discrimination. America is in serious problems not because of import from China, but its engagement in costly wars o Ametica is in serious problens not because of import fiom China, but is engagement in costly wars o Trump expressed that wealth from Middle class had been ripped off and distributed worldwide. It doesn't hold substance because it is automation and increased efficiency in America rather cheap imports from China that reduced workers demand in manufacturing sector- Even as the U.S. lost manufacturing jobs, its manufacturing output grew by over 86% during the last decade.

  7. TH: NAVIGATING A TRUMPIAN WORLD GS-2 His foreign policy denotes 3 discontinues from past First is US-Russia rapprochement. This could lead to stable world order. Solution to Syrian conflict can be sought as well as eradication of Islamic terrorism would be on anvil second is trade war with China by imposing countervailing duty on Chinese imports. o Third, Surprisingly US is not ready to shoulder the somewhat dysfunctional world order to which it had invested over a half century. Other powers like China, Russia, are demanding high price to be a partner, while EU is enmeshed in its internal rumbling Where does India stand? Unlike cold war era, India cannot afford to be passive observer of changing global order. o the context of Non Alignment had changed from not taking any postures with respect to super powers,to maintaining strategic autonomy". o India- USA relation had been outcome of three factors- End of Cold War, Opening up of Indian economy, emergence of diaspora These factors led PM Vajpayee to call India and USA as "natural allies o But increased protectionism under Trump can lead to trade restrictions as well as tightening H1B visa regime

  8. TH: NAVIGATING A T RUMPIAN WORLD GS-2 o USA restricted or even spiraling interest in maintaining world order would lead to scraping of Obama 's "Pivot to Asia " policy, in which India hold strategic position. If it is so, Indian defence engagement with USA would be reduced a lot even after signing LEMOA. Coziness with Russia would lead to nervousness with regard to Afghanistan as recently Russia, Iran had ne tound acceptance with Taliban. Post cold war era is full of uncertainty. These is neither era of hegemon, nor multi polarity but emergence of regional powers, each jostling to ensure its role in region, with shifting coalition Modi must act pragmatically rather than drawing imaginative red lines to make some space in Age of Uncertainty

  9. TRANS-PACIEIP RANS-PACIFIC R NER HID? B Partnershi with alm TRUMP WALKS THE TALK, QUITS PACIFIC TRADE PACT. WHAT HAPPENS NoW? Twelve countries that border the Pacific Ocean signed up to the TPP in February 2016, representing roughly 40% of the world's economic output o The pact aimed to deepen economic ties between these nations, slashing mbined GDP of $28.1 trillion, tariffs and fostering trade to boost growth. Members had also hoped to foster a closer relationship on economic policies and regulation. The agreement was designed so that it could eventually create a new single market, After 8 years of painstaking negotiations, the TPP pact was signed in February 2016 in Auckland. It was to have been implemented after 40% of the global GDP JAPAN VIETNAM BRUNE tification by the legislatures of member countries, but was never taken up by Congress in the US. o Once Donald Trump won election, the writing was on the wall for the MALAYSIA TPP. It may be possible for the other countries to forge a smaller scale t in its place, but it can't go ahead in its current form-Those other member states are: Japan the only country to have already ratified the pact Malaysia, Vietnam, Singapore, Brunei, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico, Chile and Peru. AUSTRALIA mises significant economic benefits American businesses and workers

  10. o Goods that would have benefitted- A full range - tariffs would have been $577 removed immediately in some cases, and over time in others. o Japanese carmakers like Toyota, Nissan and Honda would have got chea Canada access to the US, their biggest export market. US vehicle exports would have found new markets if tariffs of up to 70% in countries like Vietnam and Malaysia were slashed. American farmers and poultry firms stood to benefit, as did Vietnamese textile exports. Dairy, sugar, wine, rice and seafood would have seen lower taxes, and exporter countries such as Australia and New Zealand would have gained. Liberalised free trade was likely in UNITED STATES $532 services too. o And exactly why sheUS pulout from the pact such a big deal? o And exactly why is the US pullout from the pact such a big deal? o For the pact to come into force in its original form, it must be ratified, before February 2018, by at least 6 countries that make up 85% of the signatory nations' economic output. And since the US accounts for 60% of the combined GDP of the group, those conditions cannot be met without US participation Why India may gain? RCEPTPP Japan Canada o Pacts like the TPP and the proposed Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment USA Partnership (TTIP), a US-EU agreement, can potentially erode the demand for India IndonesiaMaaysia Vietnam an products in traditional markets such as the US and EU India's annual export losses S 50 billion if TPP was to continue. Mexico Lao Aust o Thaland Phlppines o India will gain from the RCEP, which will offer its exports greater access to Peru several Asia Pacific markets, including China. Taiwan
