The Economist On Obama’s India Visit

Filed under: Project Management — Jag @ 11:00 pm

A nice column by “Schumpeter”: http://www.economist.com/node/17414206/print. I don’t see things as rosily as he sees them (there’s a lot more work to be done; India hasn’t “arrived” but may do so in another decade provided they stick with reforms and keep politicians’ grubby hands off the economy), but am in general agreement with what he says.

A second article discusses President Obama’s non-visit: http://www.economist.com/blogs/asiaview/2010/11/obama_india. The first paragraph is a gem: “TRUE friends are welcome to pop around, even when they have little of substance to talk about. So good is the India-America relationship these days that Barack Obama has been warmly welcomed even when he comes with precious little to say.”
