TED Talk: who’ll grow faster, China or India?

Posted by sprague on September 13, 2011

Really good new TED talk from MIT professor Yasheng Huang. He thinks it’s a mistake to credit China’s authoritarian political system for its high growth rates. Instead, thank education (especially among women) and other cultural factors.

Remember that for every authoritarian success story in Asia (South Korea, Singapore) there are many authoritarian disasters (North Korea, Burma).
