填补印度的技术差距

孟买—有一个值得注意的讽刺之处,印度为世界最大公司提供了大量最棘手的信息技术问题的解决方案,但它自己并没有从技术进步中获得多少好处。对印度人民来说,幸运的是总理莫迪要改变这一幕了。

印度与其新兴亚洲对手中国之间的差距是巨大的。中国创造了全世界最大的在线市场,并成为可再生能源的全球领袖,而印度菜刚刚开始开发电子商务的潜力,数百万家中小企业仍然不知IT为何物,大部分公民也与数字经济绝缘。

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic.

    The Dangerous Delusion of Price Stability

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession.
