The baton passes to Asia

by Dave

Having lived in India from early 2006 to early 2008 and traveled all over the country – I can vouch for the tremendous boost in self-confidence, optimism and energy that one can sense. Out of a 1.1 billion population, 55% is below the age of 25, 70% below the age of 35. That energy unleashed ensures India’s high-growth rate for decades to come.

Come to Asia and fear drains away. Its replaced by confidence and a burning desire to succeed. Asian business leaders are rock stars. The culture of education and achievement is fierce.
