India's rising economy and burgeoning middle class have earned it a place alongside China as one of the world's indispensable emerging markets. But what is India’s true potential? And what can be done to unlock it?
In Reimagining India: Unlocking the Potential of Asia's Next Superpower, McKinsey brings together leading thinkers from around the world to explore and debate the challenges and opportunities facing the country.
The book's contributors include CNN's Fareed Zakaria; Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates; Google chairman Eric Schmidt; Mukesh Ambani, the CEO of India's largest private conglomerate; Harvard Business School dean Nitin Nohria; and Nandan Nilekani, cofounder of Infosys and chairman of the Unique Identification Authority of India.
A host of leading executives, entrepreneurs, economists, foreign-policy experts, journalists, historians, and cultural luminaries contributed to the book as well.
As the foreword notes, "While McKinsey consultants have contributed a few essays to this volume, Reimagining India is not the product of a McKinsey study; neither is it meant as a 'white paper' nor coherent set of policy proposals. Rather, our aim was to create a platform for others to engage in an open, free-wheeling debate about India's future."
