blah blah x vs. y who cares, did anybody actually read the article besides its last sentence? I fail to grasp just exactly how "insulated" and "protectionist" policies are actually pluses for foreign investment, can anybody explain it to me?
Let me try to help you with that by drawing from the original article.
Meaning that economic crisis in distant markets does not impact India that much and it is more of a self sustaining economy with robust domestic demand that can drive the local production.Domestic Demand: India is not an export-driven country. It is an insulated country that booms on local demand, and is not subject to the fluctuations of international markets or currencies.
Amounts to a clear indication that any investor in India will be provided with level playing field and goods from distant markets will not have an unfair advantage that they may draw from their origin countries (government subsidies, manipulated currencies??) which is not the case with a lot of other economies in Asia where China is pushing its surplus production at costs which are abysmally lower than that of the local manufacturers thus ultimately leading to erosion of total manufacturing capability in the local economy.Protection: India has put in place protective business policies that defend domestic companies from direct international competition.
Is that not a big comfort = The investor pushing capital in India can be sure that a funny policy from China will not wipe off her investment and capital?
