  • No, I don't believe so.
  • I think India has a great potential. They are highly inhibited by their government corruption. Over the last 20 years they evolved as a very serious player in technology space and that trend is continuing.  Since future dominance will be likely based on techology capability, I would say that if they address their givernment inefficiency issue then they have a real chance for World leadership.
  • Within next 20 years I expect India to continue to grow and establish itself further as a tech player.  However, It is highly unlikely to become a World Leader.  Maybe 50-100 years it would have a chance, but also they need to address their highly inneffective governance structure first.
  • Yes, with all of their production they may get out of their third world name and be much more than what they are today.
  • India has stepped up in the last 20 years and is a fascinating country.  It now is a recognized exporter of technology talent, a far cry from where they were in supplying programmers for the year 2000 scare.  They also established impressive manufacturing capabilities.
    more inportantly they now demonstrated lots of original innovation, with many mega technology companies originating in India.
    I expect that in years to come India (especially Bangalore) will give Silicon Valley a run for their money.
    As far as becoming a World leader, I don't expect it any time soon.  Too much of India population is below poverty level, government corruption is incredible, and infrastructure is lacking. It stems from structural issues, ironically oppositite of China. Too much democracy at the top to get anything done Vs China command and control.
