“As per a study by the Federation of Indian Export Organisations, India’s global merchandise exports for 2018 were $324.7 billion, of which $51.4 billion were to the US.” [Source: Donald Trump terminates preferential trade status for India under GSP.]
“China has a $700 billion trade relationship with the U.S., including imports and exports, but it has a $3 trillion trade relationship with the rest of the world.” [Source: Protectionism Is Iatrogenic Government.]
China’s economy is huge compared to India. In 1978, the two countries were in the same socialist hell: hundreds of millions living in dire poverty, with similar per capita GDP figures.
Just 40 years later, China is far ahead of India. The ratio of China’s GDP to India’s is the same as India’s GDP to the GDP of irrelevant small countries like Poland or Sweden — 5:1. (India’s population is about 30 times that of Poland, and over 120 times that of Sweden.)
Indians are not as intelligent as the Chinese, and not as capable as the Chinese in producing wealth. Or maybe Indians are as intelligent and capable as the Chinese but the government of India is the cause of India’s poverty and its poor global standing. The latter conjecture may be closer to the truth.
I believe that the Indian government is the biggest enemy that Indians face. Indians feed the enemy that systematically destroys them.
