Re: Indian Economy News & Discussion - Aug 26 2015

Seems Brazil is worst among BRICS followed by India , China & Russia when it comes to Public Debt to GDP Ratio .....Japan takes the crown along with with EU countries and Canada

I wonder why Debt is counted in context of Nominal GDP and not PPP GDP ?

Re: Indian Air Force News & Discussion - 15 Dec 2016

$8 billion for 100 drones , that is like $80 million per drone , the figures dont look right.

More likely we will opt for small number 10-15 and use it for few years before we plan to order more or likely by that time we will have our own drone

Re: LCA: News & Discussions: 15 August 2017

Checking out these videos coming out lately looks like the knives are in the open with DRDO/ADA supporting the Tejas and would want to see the Single Engine program get cancelled and opt for more of Tejas versus MOD/IAF who would want to import another 100-200 single engine fighter.
