India’s ascent is part of a trend that will see Asian economies+ increasingly dominate the top 10 largest economies over the next 15 years
The Congress today hinted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is like the cinematic ‘Bad Santa’. Congress spokesman Manish Tewari tweeted a day after Christmas to say that in the rest of the world “an old man with a white beard” – he meant Santa Claus – stuffed stockings with gifts and money. But in India, a similar looking “old man with a white beard” did quite the opposite, that is, relieved people of their money and left them only with their socks. And instead of coming down the chimney, he entered homes through the TV.
