The world isn't very happy with China right now, and with international trade in the crapper, they're in trouble, rightly so.

India is poised to step into China's role as the world's cheap manufacturer. They already produce many of the world's tractors, and they're pretty good.

They have a strong cyber capability which makes international trading viable, and their medical community is growing greatly and is brilliant in many cases.

India is also a democracy. That creates some measure of transparency, not found in any measure in China.

I'm not touting moving outsourcing to India like we did with China, but they're a BIG reality.

Bring back our pharma and manufacturing home! But, that will take a bit of time, and not all will come back to over-regulation by know-it-all bureaucrats, greedy unions, and liberal politicians. Unfortunately the younger generations are addicted to their cheap toys, mostly made in China. Weaning might be nearly impossible, but it needs to happen, and we need to return to a producing economy and away from our service economy.

20 years ago American industry thought the future was the BRIC strategy.

BRIC stands for Brazil, Russia, India, and China.

As it happened, Brazil proved as corrupt and dysfunctional as most Latin American countries. Russia was supposed to be an opportunity after the Soviet Union fell. But the government and organized crime turned out to have the same phone number. No foreign company can make money there.

That left India and China. China has always been authoritarian. If the government says, "Jump," everyone answers, "How high, SIr!" So its prosperity was basically dictated after they abandoned the insane ideology of Mao.

But India is a squabbling mess. Different cults, tribes, religions, castes, whatever. Heck, they can't even get the people to use toilets the government provides. They prefer to crap on the ground. There are bright people there and many well educated. But the overall weight of their culture is such that I don't think they will ever challenge what China has done.

Bud used to get "India Today" back in late 90's.
He was a Christian, educated here.

Said they had over 50 diff dialects............lots of turmoil.
They killed Christians weekly.
Was reported in the paper too, like 20 killed at a train depot.
Over and over.

India is not China as you pointed out, but that is also a weakness. Way too many factions (lots centered around religion) that would prevent India from ever achieving super power status.

We don't need India to be China. We just need them to provide credible competition to China in the products and services we need.

So long as the Chinese see them as a viable option for our pool of human centric capital pool it helps Trump in his bargaining with China.

They manufacture the Ford EcoSport in India and the build quality (for what it is) is excellent.

The USA's average IQ is three points lower than Mongolia's.

India is a big country with a lot of highly educated and intelligent people to draw from.

USA for medical necessity items including pharmaceuticals period. There's a profit margin to be had making them here regardless of who's screaming. Right now high prices in the US cover low negotiated prices to the infamous single payer countries. Make it here, make it always.

That IQ chart by country is a Joke. Most of the countries either do not test or test sparingly or do not have the infrastructure in place to produce those stats.

How much of the population in these countries actually gets tested? Most don't even know how many people live in the damn country.

I've known some guys with very high IQ's that could hardly clothe themselves. IQ isn't a good barometer if a country can make Nikes or not.

This ^^^^^^ ... in spades. IQ does NOT equal common sense... Anyone who has worked with off shore IT support teams understands this clearly.
