The McKinsey Quarterly: China and India: The race to growth

The McKinsey Quarterly: China and India: The race to growth

It's interesting - not only are these future superpowers countries that had a civil war around the middle of last century (well, India had Pakistan, which is sort of like a civil war), they're both countries that have been more socialist than capitalist.

Again, I don't know what it's all about, but I observe, and I say "that's interesting".

How exactly is the India-Pakistan war(s) a civil war?

As I understand (and I'm open to correction), India and Pakistan were one nation before 1947, albeit a jewel in the British Empire's crown and not a united, independent nation.

As I gather, after independence the countries split into Muslim and Hindu factions, Muslims forming Pakistan and Hindu forming the India we know today.

That sounds like a civil war to me. But I am open to a courteous history lesson if one is needed.

I'm still a China-growth sceptic, just as I was a dot-com-boom sceptic. I was right last time.
