Mr. Pei's comments on many senior Chinese officials use fradulent or dubious academic degrees are his conjecture. Where are his factual evidence to back his statement other than guesswork and speculation based on his observations? I respect freedom of opinion, but there must be limits to such freedom. Also, I am utterly disappointed that, as a FULL Professor in an acclaimed university, he should know better than to provide unsubstantiated written opinion. Worse still, Project Syndicate should have vetted before publishing such sloppy work.
Mr. Kerridge's comments are uncalled for and unfair to Indians. Please do not generalize and oversimplify by saying " Indians who received education in ideologically biased and technically focused economics typical of the USA become brainwashed.".
