A survey of India: author interview

Filed under: Uncategorized — June 1, 2006 @ 1:00 pm

A discussion with Simon Long, South Asia bureau chief of The Economist: “The extraordinary wealth of English-speaking, technically adept graduate talent…has been the foundation of [India’s] success in the past. But now that resource is beginning to run out, as it were–soon India will face a shortage there–and to find work for the far more significant portion of the Indian population that is not English-speaking, has not been to college, and works at the moment in the fields or is redundant, India needs to turn, in my view, to labour-intensive manufacturing.”
