The 2009 Legatum Prosperity Index
(click above for a wealth of infn)
A most interesting report. Take a good look and try and review the key findings how each of the countries finds itself in relation to chosen other(s)! As you compare yours with several others, this can explain some of our background problems.
Happily, India is ranked (45) far above China (75)! You know why, Indians seem more prosperous "spiritually"!
Have a nice Day! Enjoy!
