China vs. India in design--oops.

Posted by: Bruce Nussbaum on December 10, 2005

Ooops. Sorry. I attributed “genius” to the wrong genius. Niti Bhan writes about my mistakes—
“Full credit for that analysis should go to Grant McCracken. If you’ll click through to my blog post, you can find a link to his full analysis titled “India:China:Walmart:Target”. “

And Grant writes—”

Bruce, the post in question was “China : India :: Wal-Marts : India.” Posted June 9, 2005. The URL http://www.cultureby.com/trilogy/2005/06/china_india_wal.html. Thanks! Grant

Sorry. Didn’t scroll down far enough on Niti’s terrific blog. Point is, this analysis of China vs. India is really important.

Bruce,

While I'm champing at the bit to get broadband access and post about all the things I've seen, photographed and heard over here in New Delhi, I'd just like to say that the best example of the changes here was brought home to me this morning. Conventional wisdom states that when an economy is healthy and booming, the trickle down effect raises the level for the entire populace, not just the affluent, and this morning I saw the guy who cleans for my mom, answer his mobile while mopping the floor. Keep in mind, this isn't like a cleaner in the US who might make $40 to $60 per visit, but a guy who might make $40 to $60 per month.
