Yes, China and India have huge populations – 1.3 billion and 1.1 billion by latest estimates. I am tired of hearing how they are the place to be because of these numbers. So here is a thought:
We have an economy that is five times as large as either of these – six billion to be precise. The car by India’s Tata or the software by China’s Kingdee has a very limited chance of being bought by people outside of their respective billion people markets. The Apple iPod has a potential market of 6 billion. The Microsoft Windows has a potential market of 6 billion.
Enough said. Now, stop complaining and go capitalize on the mega growth opportunity.
And let’s not vote in people that want to shrink that market from 6 billion to 300 million.
