Example text

In India’s federal state no government without an absolute majority of its representatives in federal parliament and in the majority of provincial legislature can implement reform measures adequately. The perception of governments at provincial level perhaps seems to be that money is plentiful and, like a pampered child, if they cry for more money from the centre, they will get it. The comments of Rao (2004) that the provinces incur about 55 per cent of total expenditure of the Indian state but raise only 37 per cent of total revenue support that opinion of provincial governments.

Furthermore, while Chinese leaders wanted the percapita income of China to equal the average per capita income of Western countries, India’s leaders never set such a goal in the pre-reform nor postreform periods. Also, Indian leaders’ obsession with achieving equity simultaneously with growth would have made it difficult for the government to raise the rate of growth to as high a level as that of China. Domestic saving as a proportion of GDP in India has not been very high, hence foreign capital was actively sought to increase the level of total investment.

Improving the consumption standard of people has also been the objective of the Indian state but not for the same reason as in China. Indians living outside India are spread throughout the world and are not so heavily concentrated in a region close to the boundaries of India as is the case for China. Hence, the difference in living standards enjoyed by non-resident and resident Indians is not so obvious to India’s illiterate and fatalist poor, most of whom live in India’s rural hinterlands still unaware of the consumption standards of non-resident and rich resident Indians.
