What are India’s long-term advantages over China?

  • Better demographics (larger percentage of youth entering the labour force).
  • To become a thriving liberal democracy, India just needs to improve its existing democracy (the biggest on the planet), while China would require a radical political shift, most likely traumatic.
  • China has enjoyed huge manufacturing-driven growth for over a decade - now that's ending and the country needs to find other sources of growth.
