Is India the Next China?

Many see China as an emerging colossus, but India is working hard to catch up. Both project remarkable economic growth but in very different political, military and cultural contexts. Guests on the program discuss India and China, and the economics of the 21st century.


Stephen Cohen, senior fellow and director of the India Project at Brookings Institution; author of India: Emerging Power

Salman Haidar, fellow at the U.S. Institute for Peace; former Indian Foreign Secretary; former Ambassador to China: 1991 and 1992
