India Prospering

in Trade

Sandip Roy is from India.  He now lives in California.

His commentary this morning on NPR makes me happy.  Global markets are bringing prosperity to more and more Indians.

I can’t tell if Mr. Roy is as pleased as I am.  Like many residents of wealthy market societies, he seems a bit troubled by the fact that globalization is stripping many places — especially poorer places — of some of their exotic allure.  Regardless, though, his observations form a powerful testament to the beneficial consequences of open, global trade.
