Indian industry considers the Goods and Services Tax (GST)a step in the right direction and a majority are satisfied with its overall implementation, the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) said on Sunday citing its own survey.

Releasing a survey of over 200 businesses on the first anniversary of the roll out of of GST, CII said that 83 per cent of respondents saw the new indirect tax regime a step in the right direction and 65 percent are satisfied with its overall implementation, despite some teething problems.

“A year into the implementation of GST, there is great optimism among businesses about the impact of GST on the economy. Satisfaction was high across the spectrum on GST implementation issues as well,” a CII statement said.

GST implementation led to increased efficiency for businesses by reducing their transportation time, on account of absence of state barriers, the report said.

“GST has had a moderating impact on retail price inflation, which may have risen to higher level without the new tax regime,” CII Director General Chandrajit Banerjee said in the statement.

One-third of the survey respondents witnessed a downward movement in the wholesale prices of their supplies, while nearly 30 percent saw a fall in the retail prices of supplies. A majority of respondents witnessed no change in their supply prices.

“The survey also indicates a positive impact of GST on employment as well as on the demand for goods and services. Given that it is the biggest tax reform of independent India, one must compliment the government on its efficient and transparent administration despite some ‘teething problems’,” Banerjee said.

On product coverage under GST, a majority of 87 per cent of respondents said the products manufactured by them have been listed or classified under GST, and were largely satisfied with the tax rates and the exemptions provided on the supply of goods and services.

According to the report, many businesses reported satisfaction with the process for payment of taxes and interest under the GST and felt that the maintenance of records is also simpler.

Respondents also showed a high level of comfort with the provisions on valuation.

“The survey has confirmed the fact that filing of returns and payment of tax is much easier and simpler under the new regime, as also the maintenance of records,” Banerjee said.

Regarding demand, 78 per cent of the respondents witnessed either an increase, or no change, in the demand for goods post-GST implementation, while the same figure was 90 per cent for services.

The survey was based on responses from over 200 firms of different sizes, with 46 per cent having an annual turnover of over Rs 100 crore, 29 per cent with a turnover between Rs 5 crore to Rs 100 crore, 11 percent have a turnover of between Rs 1.5 crore to Rs 5 crore and 13 per cent are with a turnover of less than Rs 1.5 crore.

Gifted kids aren’t the only ones with sleep issues. Gifted adults have many of the same issues. Difficulty turning off the brain, existential worries, overexcitabilities. Oh, and back pain. Adults just have a few better coping skills…and wine.

I love sleep. Sleep is my favorite. I have several younger friends having babies right now, and while I’m thrilled for them, I’m even more thrilled that it ain’t me, because I love sleep. I’ll never get a puppy, because I love sleep. I’ll never work an overnight shift of anything, because I love sleep. After screwing up my sleep and my life to the point of earning a Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Lifetime Achievement Award, I love sleep. I never again want to find myself in the rut of having a full night’s sleep and waking more tired than when I clicked off the light. It’s painful. Unfortunately I seem to be scooching back to that; I blame winter and stress. Looks like I’ll be instituting Jen’s Plan For Showing Sleep How Much She Loves It. Basically, cut back on caffeine (whimper…) and call it quits earlier in the night. Just more self-care adulting. Except today. Today I require caffeine to function. I’ll start tomorrow. Maybe.

So to the parents with young gifted kids who rarely sleep: they will eventually. I swear. And if they don’t, they will eventually grok that keeping you from blessed slumber is not in their best interest. Then you, too, will have a passionate affair with sleep once again.

And caffeine.

And wine.

This is the story of two young men. Age peers, but there the similarities diverged, much like the path in the woods. This is the story of Goofus and Gallant.

Gallant was a fine young chap, admired by his peers and adored by adults. He was the best at nearly everything he tried, and actively worked to be so. He seemed to effortlessly balance advanced classes, leadership roles, volunteer work, paid employment, and anything else expected of him. When participating in class, he could advance the discussion with a well-considered idea on the topic. He would have appropriate answers to the teachers’ questions, usually replying in detail. Gallant absorbed information, usually mastered new concepts in a half-dozen or so repetitions, and enjoyed the view from the top of the group. Getting As in class was important to him, and he was generally pleased with his success in school. He had many friends, usually in his grade, and appreciated the complex humor they all enjoyed. Overall, Gallant was the very model of successful young man, and his future was very bright.

Stan B Klein While I certainly applaud your critique of this “mindless” research program, you do not go far enough. For starters, we have a review (i.e., Hassin) of conscious vs unconscious processes -- yet never once are we told what consciousness of unconsciousness consist in. More, what flavor of “consciousness” is the YIP placed in opposition to? Sentience? Qualia? Self-consciousness? And so forth. No one knows. Entirely expected from academic psychology; but one might hope for more when the ostensible demonstrations (and that is ALL they are -- since there are no conceptually-grounded theories on offer concerning the targets of inquiry) are about consciousness and its cognates. Had there been an attempt to specify with some theoretically rigor what flavor of consciousness YIC is dealing in, then Dennett’s just so story (I guess I forgot to pay sufficient attention to the cognition and consciousness fossil exhibit the last time I visited the Smithsonian) might have seemed ludicrous on its face. Are we really to believe there were no sentient beings until 50,000 years ago? (or 1.8M, or whatever?) That animals did not feel pain or experience their perceptions (in the sense of “what it is like") until rather recently? And what is positioned in (temporal) comparison to late-breaking consciousness? Reading and math!– which were not part of the fossil OR historical records until several thousand years ago. Some great supporting evidence YIC marshals. Did the idea that we have unconscious processes that underwrite our experiential first-person being just become apparent to social psychology? It would seem so. Reminds me of neuroscience’s big discovery a few years back that, via correlative imaging techniques we "finally know" that memory is not necessarily a snapshot of past experience! Munsterberg (1909) and Bartlett (1932) must be spinning in their graves.
