Interesting stuff. If you know your history, China and India shared pretty much the same sort of economic power and social situation internally at the time of China’s revolution – 1949. Their economies have diverged.

One of the most significant parallels, the shared experience of corruption – if you’re a Westerner doing business in either country – is slowly beginning to turn. The international rating system for corruption now place China just above India – and we will learn over the next few years whether or not the call to clean that nation of corrupt officials and business people actually becomes a standard.

Still, the infographic says a lot about rising from the Dark Ages to, say, mid-20th Century levels in 60 years is impressive.
