    I think I will be 83 then, if I make it that far, and frankly at that age I won't give a damn!

    Indian economy starting to falter...
    :eusa_eh:
    India's economy loses its luster
    February 14, 2012 - India's much-heralded economic boom is faltering, with stock index declining 25 percent. Speed bump or meltdown?

    India is a shit hole. It's been a shit hole and will always be a shit hole until they adopt western business practices and stop that stupid ass head bobble shit that as far as I can tell means only that they haven't the slightest idea.

    China is actually running right into the teeth of a declining population trend that will create all sorts of issues to be dealt with. India will experience the same in due course.

    If they don't pull their heads out of their assess India will certainly not be an asset to anyone. Even in the IT outsourcing arena companies are starting to realize that India just can't get the job done. Sure, they can do it cheaper because they treat employees like shit and pay them next to nothing in comparison, but you get what you pay for. They are still deeply entrenched in this stupid ass caste system and the women are treated terribly.

    It's funny how the clueless resort right away to name calling when they can't come up with an intelligent reply. You have proven yourself to be unworthy of my time. You obviously support India and their backward ass ways of doing things, which is very likely why you haven't countered with anything except name calling. Have a good day and I really hope that attitude of yours serves you well.

    I don't know if this is a good thing for them, a quarter of that population is living under the poverty line on 40 cents a day, India is doing better economically but its a tall order to provide jobs and services for all those people.

    Its also interesting how Indias population is so big when the Indian families I met have not really been that large, whereas Hispanic families in the US are pretty big but not even close to a billion yet.

    Just what American workers need; an abundant supply of ready and willing cheap foreign labor.

    Well, most of the Indians in the US are Middle Class or higher. While in India they're mostly rural and 75% live on less than $2/day. Educated middle class don't have as many kids as poor and rural.
