    Right now China is the “big cheese” in Asia no doubt and is on track to becoming the world’s largest economy.India is decades behind China in terms of economy but it is also growing at a fast pace.Ultimately,who do you think will have the larger economy (in terms of wealth).

    China has the better military now,but India isn’t far behind.Ultimately (again) who will have the better military in the future?

    I’ve recently been looking at economic growth of developing countries. Without a doubt, the most notable country is China. Among the major developing economies, the ones with smaller populations have all transitioned into a more or less democratic system of government and this doesn’t seem to hamper their development much. China and India though, both with populations of over 1 billion, look completely different. India has modeled its gov’t after the British parliamentary system. China, on the other hand, has an authoritarian government. Today, China is the world’s 2nd largest economy, India is the 11th. Though their disparity in development is a really complex issue, I think a major factor is China’s authoritarian government can get things done quickly and efficiently, India’s corrupt bureaucracy and parliament can’t agree on anything, therefore dragging the entire country with it.

    Do you think an authoritarian regime with relatively capable leaders is better than a divisive democracy for a developing nation?
