India’s invisible human infrastructure is the nation’s mighty resource

The Elephant and the Dragon
Robyn Meredith

India and China are transforming the globe, as stunningly as the US did when it emerged onto the world economic stage, writes Robyn Meredith in The Elephant and the Dragon ( ). She sees the impact of the transformation in varied places: The falling prices on Wal-Mart’s shelves, the rising gas prices, the shrinking paycheques in the developed world, the voices on the end of tech-support phone calls, and even in the air we breathe. Also, “It is noticeable from the way freighters float low in the waters of the South China Sea because they are so heavily loaded with goods flowing out of new Chinese factories.”
