If CPC continue to be the govt, in China.... Indian economy won't overtake the "stated value" of chinese economy by 2050. But just so...
And if a revolution hits china .... only then one can assess the state of china's economy today. They are piling up plenty of $hit under the carpet.
In 1985, did you expect India to have a larger economy than Russia's or Soviet Union.
I'm all in for Chouka(fours) if not for sixer..
It's so annoying when cities are over crowded...
I am worried to be honest , India's population is expected to hit 1.65-1.70 billion before declining . I don't know where we are going to fit these additional 450-500 million Indians .
@ post no. 23> we are also ahead of them in milk production and enjoy stats of No.1 milk producing nation in world
Yes India will overtake china.....china is forcefully decreasing their population by officially killing second child in the women womb...... whereas India don't have such kinda policy...... chinese people is lucky because even they want second child, their govn will not give such freedom...... all hail.... and looney toons always cheer-leading for such idiotic threads.....
Indian population size is a detriment
When India surpasses China in overall population, it will be a meaningless event.
1. Population size is no longer correlated with GDP size. China's GDP is currently five times the Indian GDP and the gap is growing larger. By 2021, I expect China's nominal GDP differential with India to increase to about 7 to 1.
2. The increase in Indian population is good for China strategically. The Indian government lacks the resources to provide basic services for its people. Hence, instead of 500 million well-educated and well-fed Indians, we have 1.2 billion Indians without access to clean water or sufficient food.
3. All of these Indians without jobs are paralyzing the Indian government's ability to govern. For example, the Indian government dare not cut its subsidies for gasoline or cooking oil. These subsidies will keep growing larger as the population increases and drain the Indian government's budget.
India has to choose whether to devote its scarce resources to subsidies (and feed its people) or build highways. It can't do both. The growing Indian population will delay India's modernization of its infrastructure by decades.
4. The PLA is mechanized. Carpet bombing one million or ten million Indian soldiers makes no difference. It is the level of military technology and deployment that is important. The number of warm bodies as targets is irrelevant to a mechanized army.
