Sidebar: I sometimes wonder if this China-India comparison is a tad overdone. However, given that we’re talking about 2.3 billion people, or more than a third of the globe’s population, these two countries economic successes (or lack, thereof) matter a lot.
Another perspective: A friend, who’s been to the Middle Kingdom several times and is well on her way to becoming a China “hand” says that the Chinese — businessmen, government officials and journalists — don’t really spend too much time on India. For them, it’s more the US and Japan. .
