Synopsis: “If you don’t read this book, you are going to be left behind. The future of the world will be determined by India.”—Richard D’Aveni, Professor of Strategic Management, Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, and author of Hypercompetition 

With 1.1 billion residents and the fastest growing free market economy, the world’s largest democracy is poised to dominate the world stage. Vinay Rai, one of India’s top businessmen and philanthropists, gives an insider’s view into his country’s dynamic transformation and meteoric rise. With the economy soaring at eight percent a year, India is a medical and pharmaceutical frontrunner, an R&D powerhouse, a rising manufacturing hub, and an up-and-coming cultural trendsetter from fashion to film. Rai also explores what impact this stunning growth will have on the United States in terms of business development and foreign policy, especially regarding China, with which India shares a border. Think India is fascinating and essential reading for forward-thinking businesspeople and anyone who wants to understand India’s new muscle on the global stage.
