Imagining India in a hot, flat and crowded world

It was a meeting of two worlds – one bogged down by the sub-prime crisis and the other feeling the brunt of it but optimistic about the opportunities ahead.
Two authors, Thomas Friedman and Nandan Nilekani, have provided a perspective of either side of the economy at a discussion in Bangalore titled "Imagining India in a hot, flat and crowded world". They discussed parallels and differences in the US and Indian economies while sharing their views on the changing scenario in both countries.
The greatest worry that troubled Friedman, the well known US journalist and author of various books, including the best-seller "The World is Flat", is whether the US government would be able to pull through the multi-generational problems, including healthcare, pension reforms and energy.
