Simon “THINK INDIA: The Rise of the World’s Next Superpower and What It Means for Every American,” by Vinay Rai and William L. Simon is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand India’s new muscle on the global stage. In THINK INDIA, best-selling author William L. Simon combines with Vinay Rai, a philanthropist, and an icon of progress in India, to give an insider’s view into the country’s dynamic transformation, revealing the forces and unique characteristics behind India’s meteoric rise.
In THINK INDIA, Vinay Rai directly challenges Thomas Friedman’s thesis in “The World is Flat.” Rai argues that technology is not the sole factor in creating opportunity in emerging economies. While technology and outsourcing contributed $36 billion to the Indian economy last year, India is more than just an IT hub. Virtually every sector of its economy is growing, from tourism and manufacturing to retail sales and entertainment (Bollywood is the largest film industry in the world). Rai argues that India’s democratic government , education system, values, innovation, modern institutions, and entrepreneurship will drive its success over the next half-century.
THINK INDIA examines Indian culture, how it is changing in response to modernization, and what it means for doing business in the country. India is now seen as a rising political and economic power that will wield considerable influence on the world stage in the twenty-first century. THINK INDIA is a colorful, lively, forward-looking account of India’s stunning world debut. “Deserves to be widely read by anyone who wants a proper understanding of the great twenty first century economic and political power that India promises to be.” Bill Emmot, Former Editor In Chief of The Economist. “Think India is Vinay Rai’s trumpet blast announcing the coming of new economic superpower. His fascinating book is a must read for all Americans intrigued by the next wave of seismic economic change.”
… Prof. Joshua Ronen, Stern School of Business, NYU “India has awakened from its centuries-old slumber, heading toward becoming a global superpower. This excellent, beautifully written book presents the unfolding story that every American should know more about.” Steve Westly, former Senior Vice President of ebay; California State Controller. “Think India is a passage to the new India.
