India Ascends While America Descends
"But sometimes it's good to step back a little bit and try to get the larger picture, the sort of 10,000 foot view, if you will. And I'm watching a very interesting skirmish playing out on social media that raises this kind of a larger issue. So you got a guy who is called the last contrarian on Twitter and he's been posting photos of India versus the United States. Obviously, catches my interest to someone who came from India to America in the late 1970s. And this guy makes the point, he goes, listen, most westerners think of India as a kind of backward slumdog millionaire begging bowl of the world type of country. But he goes, you don't realize what India looks like now. And he posts all these pictures of how clean the airports are, how efficient and modern, the trains look, the huge skyscrapers that make even New York to some degree start looking a little bit old and run down and he then makes the point which is that India is an ascending society, and he says it's part of the ascending world, whereas America is part of the descending world. And he's implies that western as our kind of in denial that they are in the downward slope. Now, a couple of Indians weigh in on this and kind of reinforce what he's saying. And one guy says that if you compare the Indian city of kanpur, it launched a new metro rail system, which had built in two years. And he says contrast this with San Francisco, which has spent $300 million and literally decades to build a metro system and it's still not finished. So the efficiency is the point here and then this Indian guy biological srinivasan makes the point he says, you know, if you told me, even 20 years ago, that Indian cities would look better than American cities or live better.
