Superpower? The Amazing Race Between China's Hare and India's Tortoise

Chevening Gurukul Programme public lecture

After decades working with foreign investors, multinationals, and his own native government, Raghav Bahl knows that most of the world underestimates and largely misunderstands India and its potential in the global economy, particularly when set against its neighbor and economic powerhouse China. In his new book 'Superpower?' he takes a close look at who is likely to dominate the world over the next decade - India or China - and provides an incisive and in-depth analysis about the race to superpower status between the two Asian giants. Bahl argues that it might come down to just one deciding factor: can India fix its governance before China repairs its politics? The key question is whether China so far ahead that India can never catch up?

Known as "the Rupert Murdoch of India," Raghav Bahl is the founder, controlling shareholder and managing director of Network 18, India's largest television news and business network, which broadcasts content from CNN and CNBC, and publishes Forbes India.
