In the early 1980s, India was richer on a per capita basis than China —
India’s population was much smaller than China’s, but its GDP was of
similar size.

Chinese are known to the shrewd business.. Chinese want to control,
they are control freak.. india have to be cautions.


Members of India’s middle class have become remarkably arrogant,
thinking that there must be something special about them that made them
so much richer, but they were merely lucky beneficiaries of western
technology. This arrogance has boosted nationalism, which is spreading

India’s Problems Have Deep Roots



Population growth and demographics of India incl. projection



Commodity and currency markets have been very turbulent, and the Arab
Spring has not only failed to keep up its pace, it has half-destroyed
the Middle East, with fires raging in Syria, Turkey, Libya, etc. Migrant
problems in Europe and the uncertain future of the US — as per the
current narrative — leave India as the prime candidate to prop up global
economic growth.



Not only did this not happen, but as demonstrated above, by now it looks
as though it will be virtually impossible for India to outpace China.
One should pause to reflect on why so many have been so consistently
wrong about India.



Given a chance, Indian companies prefer to move their factories to
China. Indian cities and villages are packed with Chinese good, even
very basic ones. The way Indians drive mirrors how Indian manufacturing
and service industries operate:

I have checked it for many products and found that Indian or other
country products are not much costly compared to Chinese products. And
quality is definitely better. Chinese are business minded and if at any
moment, they feel that their business interests are stake, they will
kick Pakistan in no time.

In the last three decades, India’s economy has grown, but most of this
growth can be attributed to significantly improved access to the western
world and its technology through the new medium of internet and cheap
telephony. The low-hanging fruit from this have been plucked and India
is starting to show signs of stagnation.

I am told by some body in China the government will not allow any body
to die or become super rich like India


What Will India’s Future be Like?

India”s economy is far behind China. Of course, China can immensely
help India to become a five-fold economy, forget about China”s economy
, it is China”s population and their demands that is itself a huge
scope to cop up with Chinese market if India gets the opportunity.


It should be easy to see that India is not the next China. There is no
point in holding out much hope for India. Rather, it is ever easier to
conclude that it is on the way to becoming the next banana republic,
similar to neighboring countries such as Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri
Lanka, Myanmar or Nepal.

India is an extremely irrational, superstitious, and tribal country. The
concept of reason is mainly conspicuous by its absence in much of India.
India was long associated with Britain and has imported western
institutions, ways of living, technology, etc., over the last 200-300
years, but has failed to import the concept of reason.

Dinakar Varadarajan


India’s institutions are often highlighted as the reason for the
country’s superiority over China or other non-democratic systems. The
reality is that in the last 70 years, Indians have systematically
destroyed the institutions left by the British. Today’s judiciary,
legislature and executive are not comparable.

The problem is that many people confuse “rate of growth” with actual
“growth.” They blithely assume that a higher growth rate means greater
growth. They assume that a decline in the growth rate is a decline in
growth. Perhaps people simply see what they want to see as a result of
their ideological preferences.

India certainly appears to be in an advantageous position in terms of
demographics. While China’s society is aging and the number of young
people is declining, more than 50% of Indians are below the age of 29.
Alas, this is likely to turn into a liability, as the vast majority of
them are unskilled and incapable of participating in the modern economy.

It helps to play around with the numbers cited above to understand how
erroneous expectations have been. If one assumes that India continues to
grow at a rate of 7.5%, and China at a rate of 6.3% from here on out, it
will take 127 years before India’s per capita growth will actually begin
to exceed China’s.

The history of democracy’s achievements in the non-western world is
particularly bad. Africa, the Middle East, South East Asia and most of
South America are riddled with countries that embraced democracy and
almost immediately took a turn for the worse. In fact, I cannot think of
a single country in these regions that improved after adopting
democracy. Nepal, East Timor, and PNG are vivid recent examples.

The Sacred Cow of Democracy



Indian manufacturing plants or offices, including those in the private
sector are chaotic, wasteful and incapable of planning and following a
system as a result. Labor costs appear cheap, but India’s chaos ensures
low productivity.

Observation and suggestions are realistic. There is no open enimity
between India and China and hence developing business partnership will
be beneficial.


Non-western countries which have performed better in terms of economic
growth and social indexes improved during time periods in which they
were for all practical purposes not democratic. To name a few: Lee Kuan
Yew’s Singapore, British and now Chinese Hong Kong, Park Chung-hee’s
South Korea, Pinochet’s Chile, and Chiang’s Taiwan.

Of course. We can learn not only from the experiences from China, a
country similar to India in terms of population and cultural
attributes, but also from other developing countries like Vietnam,
Indonesia etc.. Chinese experience shows that a country with such a
large population can transform itself by large scale investments in
infrastructure, education, health care, etc.. and by adopting
appropriate economic reforms.

India has been the world’s favorite country for the last three years. It

All evidence indicates that Indians were actually disincentivized from
developing critical thinking, creativity and reasoning skills. Why

In India democracy never worked, but who need facts when emotions need
to be satisfied? If Africa were a country, India would be worse off in
terms of virtually every economic and social index on per capita basis.
As a proportion of India’s population, the country’s people are among
the world’s poorest, most diseased, wretched and malnourished.

It seems to be deeply emotionally satisfying to finally see the world’s

Based on these figures, India will add USD 129 in economic output on a
per capita basis if it grows at a pace of 7.5%. Similarly, if China
grows by 6.3%, its output will increase by USD 520 per capita.



Popular Narrative



Under Modi’s reign, as the institutions which the British left continue
to get destroyed, liberties are falling, taxes are going up without any
improvements in public service, and the regulatory burden has increased
significantly. The country is getting increasingly centralized as well,
and brought under Modi’s command. He believes he has to do more of all
these things to ensure India remains on a path to growth. This is a
recipe for disaster.

China’s GDP is USD 11.4 trillion (2016; IMF). India’s GDP is USD 2.25
trillion (2016; IMF). These economies are in no way comparable. The
Chinese economy is more than 5 times larger. China’s GDP per capita
stands at USD 8,260 and that of India at USD 1,718. China’s population
(1.37 billion) and the population of India (1.34 billion) are comparable
— but China is five times richer on a per capita basis.

Intellectuals should engage in some self-reflection on why they have
been consistently wrong about India.It is China that exhibits continued
economic and social growth. China keeps coming out with innovative
products. In China’s book shops one can find Chinese translations of
many of the best foreign books. I’m worried that India could rapidly
become a backwater by comparison.


Ban on china would boost domestic industry.

In a society lacking in rationality, nationalism is not perceived to be
about human values but is a mere geographical, tribal concept. Hindutava
(Hindu-nationalism) has been on the rise. The BJP, the party
representing this ideology, has come to power two and half years ago,
with Narendra Modi as the prime minister.

Indians in general should avoid business links with Chinese and
temporarily avoid Chinese goods.Chinese goods are mostly non-essentials.
Substitutes are not very costly either, except very few items.

On 8th November 2016, Modi announced a ban on banknotes affecting 86% of
the monetary value of currency in circulation. This has been another
example of his dictatorial policies, as the decision was not even
discussed by his own cabinet. Even the central bank did not know about
the ban until the very last moment.

Amazing growth never heard anywhere in the world, from 2.2 trillion to
10 trillion in 14 years?


While India grew economically, government grew at an even faster rate.
People and corporations took on debt faster than they could repay it.
They imported the lifestyle and a generous helping of consumerism from
the West, mostly its entertainment aspects. Reason fell by the wayside.



Assimilating the concept of reason hasn’t happened in the last 200-300
years. In Europe it took about 2,000 years after it was discovered by
Greco-Roman philosophers. Could it take another millennium or more
before India’s society will be able to assimilate the concept of reason?

sold to the largest bidder.

Readers should reflect on the fact that Modi took a decision crippling
the economy by robbing it of its life-blood, depriving people of the
medium of exchange they needed for performing transactions, without
worrying in the least about checks and balances.



They can only think in terms of might is right, street-smartness and

It is often claimed that India has the largest English speaking
population outside the western world. This was true in the past, but it
is likely no longer true. China has brought in a large number of native
speakers from Canada, the UK and the US to teach English to its
students. It seems very likely that there are now more English speakers
in China than there are in India – and they speak better English.
