    By

    January 22, 2013

    We just read Economic Times- ET’s story on India vs. China.
    (http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/economy/indicators/with-5-3-pc-growth-rate-india-losing-out-to-china-on-development/articleshow/18107833.cms)

    And here’s what Economy Decoded- ED could make of it:
    1. China’s GDP is twice that of India
    2. China grew at 7.7% in 2012, while India at 5.3%

    What goes against India in becoming a winner against China:

    1. Corruption, extremely poor governance, suffocating political and bureaucratic attitude
    2. Outdated policies, laws and ways of functioning
    3. Snail speed judicial systemLack of basic amenities like electricity, water, sanitation pan-India
    4. Poor public infrastructure be it roads, rails, buildings, metros
    5. A lot of Indian youth is unskilled or working as peddlers or not at all

    What goes against China:
    1. Autocratic regime
    2. Corruption
    3. Mass manufacturing capability
    4. Lesser transparent legal system

    So on whom are you placing your bets in this Super Power race? India or China?
