Urbanization in China and India
This work quantizes
the scale of urbanization in South East Asia. It represents a massive capital investment
and it will quickly achieve the GDP per capita of the present developed world
which will also be transforming itself into better lifeways.
The impact of near ten percent growth, year
after year for a third of the globe’s population is that the rest of the world
is also maintaining sustained growth if only because they become suppliers to these economies. This has invigorated Africa
just about everywhere.
Investors no longer care too much about the useless
fool or big man in charge because they know time will resolve all that and they
can only win in the long term.
* Indian cities will create 70 percent of new jobs, and these will prove a powerful magnet. MGI projects
that the urban population of India
will increase from 340 million in 2008 to 590 million by 2030.
* If India
pursues a new operating model for its cities, it could add as much as 1 to 1.5
percent to annual GDP growth, bringing the economy near to the double-digit
growth to which the government aspires.
* If India
continues to invest in urban infrastructure at its current rate—very low by
international comparison—gridlock and urban decay will result.
* From 2002 to 2007, India invested 5.7% of GDP on infrastructure while China invested 9.3%
