Re: India, China…Tortoise, Hare?

Asia Times Letters, 19.08.2005

Some readers should attack the message and not the messenger. I explicitly stated in my piece [India, China … tortoise, hare? [Aug 18] that "it is not for [me] to judge". I was comparing only one aspect of the two economies anyway – the corporate sector – so it can hardly be called a sweeping generalization. However, there is one point to be noted: rather than criticizing a certain point I made, other issues have been raked up, such as the "white man's laws" in India. I suggest a recent book to these voices: The Argumentative Indian by the Nobel laureate economist Amartya Sen. It ought to show how ancient the tradition of democracy is in Indian philosophy. But how was this issue relevant to the article in the first place? I am flummoxed.
