jacket during a news conference at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame (Source: AP) Top News The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame will soon welcome two of the sport’s game-changing stars — one big and one small Shaquille O’Neal and Allen Iverson headline the Class of 2016 to be enshrined on Friday Joining them in the 10-member class will be Chinese star Yao Ming WNBA star Sheryl Swoopes longtime Michigan State coach Tom Izzo and NBA executive Jerry Reinsdorf along with four posthumous inductees Hall of Fame chairman Jerry Colangelo a 2004 inductee said it might be one of the best classes he has seen “I think it’s an extraordinary class” Colangelo told The Associated Press “It’s true that each year we think it’s a great class But some years some of them do stand out” O’Neal a four-time NBA champion and seventh on the all-time scoring list was one of the NBA’s most popular stars for what he did both on and off the court The 7-foot (213-meter) center again drew all eyes to him during Thursday’s jacket ceremony for the inductees After he slipped on his custom orange blazer O’Neal theatrically waved off Hall of Fame president and CEO John Doleva clearing the way for the man who once called himself “The Big Aristotle” to strut solo across the stage as camera bulbs flashed Then when he was seated on the dais O’Neal sprung to his feet and relieved Doleva who was struggling to reach the massive shoulders of the 7-foot-6 (229-meter) Yao O’Neal grabbed the jacket and gleefully assumed the role of impromptu butler for his fellow big man His antics started much earlier Swoopes told a story of O’Neal promising her $1 million if she would fake a fall during the class’ walk to the stage She declined but only because she said O’Neal wouldn’t “show me the money” Later O’Neal explained that his bravado was only his attempt to savor every moment of the experience He said his speech Friday will be a love letter to those who helped him achieve a basketball dream that didn’t seem real when he was a teenager “I don’t memorize a lot of stuff but I have this one memorized” O’Neal said of his speech “I wouldn’t miss it for the world I bought about 1000 tickets to each event All my family everybody will be there It’s just great” He said being in the same class with a guy like Iverson was appropriate for two players who brought their own unique styles to the NBA — O’Neal as an imposing force in the middle and Iverson as a small player whose skill and personal bravado still resonate today “He had a lot of heart” O’Neal said of Iverson “We’re similar in the aspect that we did it our way … I was only going to do it my way He did it his way Cultural icon A lot of things were implemented because of his style — with the dress code — and the way he wears chains and big tattoos and all that stuff He made it cool for that to happen” Iverson missed Thursday’s jacket ceremony arriving late to speak with the media He got emotional when he was asked about the people he credited for his success and highlighted John Thompson his college coach at Georgetown as well as Larry Brown his longtime NBA coach with the Philadelphia 76ers “That’s the only thing that gets me here is my teammates My teammates and my coaches” said the former NBA Rookie of the Year and 2001 Most Valuable Player “That’s the only reason I’m here All those guys sacrificed their games and sacrificed things for me” O’Neal said Iverson’s crossover of Michael Jordan during his rookie season in 1997 was the definition of the kind of player Iverson was “Everybody talks about his move against Michael Jordan” O’Neal said “You got to have (guts) to pull off a move against a legend like that” Yao ushered in a new era of international basketball when he left China to become the top pick of the NBA draft in 2002 As a member of the Houston Rockets he earned All-Rookie honors and would go on to be an eight-time All-Star He was named a three-time FIBA Asian Championship Most Valuable Player “When I’m walking through the Hall for the first time I feel I’m so small” Yao said “I look up to the roof top and all the pictures around … I really sense all the people before me

that the logic of markets was never explained Even as he brought in a Hayekian world with a vengeancePM Narasimha Rao talked Nehrus socialism right up to his defeat in 1996 His successorunderstandablydid not want to be the bearer of bad news either People like melooked upon as outsiderswrote on the need to be real But the minister who succeeded me dropped the requirement that CERC pricing be mandatory and the minimum agricultural tariff clause from the draft bill I introduced in Parliament in 1997 This later destroyed the Electricity Act One could cite the story of fertilisers or grainwhere modulated subsidies for equity or efficiency were thrown overboard This means that the country still thinks that all prices are only costs and economists are dispensable Kaushik Basu is an outsider and started well by taking the position that a rise in prices will reduce the deficit and reduce prices At one level this is a tautology that some sneer at I was once asked why I support a truism which a tautology is (in the sense that it need not be scientifically tested since it is defind in a manner that it is true) my answer was that I dont believe in falsisms But at least someone is saying that in a political decision there is an economic bottomline Otherwisewhile you dont say soprices must be fixed as in a plan which allowed a 5 per cent increase in prices over five years and all quantities were distributed accordingly In this view all prices are only costs That is not a truismfor while its true that most prices are coststhey are not only costs and even Kaushik is not saying so In 1992when we quietly signed an agreement with the Bretton Woods institutions to jettison a lot of controlswe needed to explain to our people that we will nowsubject to some restrictions and regulationsfollow free markets and that means that prices at home and abroad will not only be costsbut will also play a role in allocating resources They will also determine incomes I was a part of a gang which did it in the second half of the 80s but we would blow our trumpet on domestic reform firstglobal laterprice decontrol and moving over from controls to financial instruments I didnt do the reform of the early 90sin fact I was a mild critic of the phasing and harmonisation behind itbut I do know enough economics to say that no one really explicated the basis of our policies An increase in fuel prices will not only increase some costs It will also encourage people to use energy more efficiently Underlying almost all the climate change models which Jairam Ramesh inflicted on a largely uninterested populationwas the assumption that we will follow sensible energy pricing policies So its not only efficiency now but equity between us and the future are you going to be fair to your grandchildren or not Of course prices are also purchasing power and incomes and for the life of me I dont understand why we cant put in more money into public transportmini hydelssolar chullahs and the workswhile raising the price of fossil fuels Of course we should not be efficient only in fuel There is the price of fertiliser and grain once you beginit leads to the questionwhy not more The cost of protecting some fertiliser factories is very high in terms of the fuel wasted per unit of urea produced But the powerful market incentives placed in that report for energy efficient urea production remain in a government siloto use a phrase Montek Ahluwalia invented We are talking here of saving about ten thousand crores in fuel cost You went out of the way to reject the Alagh Committee on tariff policies for agriculturealthough the logic of the situation brings you back to it in myriad ways When people are hurt they will be angrybut it is the dharma of an economistwhos not entering a popularity contestto say that some prices have to rise for all of us to be better I dont believe in free markets for a strategic vision is the heart of policy in a poor countrybut living in western India I know that some things markets do better than economists and babus and we must use themwhere they work The writera former Union ministeris chairmanInstitute of
