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

Download: Audio

Speaker(s): Raghav Bahl
Chair: Dr Howard Machin

Recorded on 15 November 2010 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building.

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 neighbour 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.
