On Globalisation India, Like China, Needs To Be More Aggressive. Some poll numbers:
…Indians are open to the outside world but less so than the Chinese. Regarding globalisation in general, 76% of Chinese think it is good for their country, compared with only 45% in India (although only 6% of Indians disagree, with the rest offering no opinion). Forty-six per cent of Indians surveyed feel that foreign companies have a good influence on their country (compared with 76% in China) versus 25% who disagree (9% in China)….
…Around 85% of Indians feel their culture is superior to others, compared with 66% of Chinese. Only 51% of Indians like the pace of modern life, compared with 65% of Chinese….
There’s a reason that anti-globalization greenies find fellow travellers in India.
