    A well-informed retrospective about the next economic superpowers

    China and India are both vast, dynamic countries. The pace of their progress is furious and they are earmarked to become "the planet's next economic superpowers." Many commentators on Asia fall into the trap of a stereotype, as if they are classifying China and India together under one broad title - "Chindia." However, China and India are starkly different nations, as highlighted in this book edited by Pete Engardio. For readers unfamiliar with either country, this text provides an easy-to-read introduction. It revisits some of the most common facts and fallacies about economic and business life in both states. getAbstract recommends this well-written, well-edited retrospective archive of BusinessWeek articles as an excellent historic source for anyone interested in China and India's economic emergence during the past several years.

    Not a single Mention of Reliance Group the Numero Uno Corp. of India

    While comparing the surge of these two great economies, the author has thrown light on the similarities and differences between the economies of India & China. While he has done a fair job of this, the author while writing about India's booming private sector has focused only on a section of India's leading private sector corporations. I was amazed to find out that he has deliberately chosen to not mention the accomplishments and contribution of Reliance Group of companies,who are by far the 'Numero Uno' Private Corporation in India. Reliance has been the single largest contributor to the Indian economy for the last decade and the way they have contributed to this privatization revolution in India deserves kudos. This would amount to not mentioning Microsoft's accomplishments in todays IT world.
