With President Bush visiting India this week, it is time to take a look at that nation. There is an intriguing Newsweek article over at msnbc.com which summarizes India's current situation. Because the article does present some opinions, such as comparing India to the U.S. in a lot of ways, I put it firmly in the editorial category.
Over the next century, it will be interesting to watch India grow. As a capitalist, I think India could be the blueprint for growth from third world status to first world status. If the Indian government can balance all of the political, social, and economic factors, they could become the world's next great superpower.
