        News on Jun 21, 2012 - India offers $10 billion (Rs. 55,000/- crore) to combat fallout of the eurozone crisis. Dr MMS pledged an additional $ 10 billion to IMF’s firewall against a eurozone financial conflagration. The Indian mainstream media described it as a right step at the right time because if the eurozone collapses the Indian economy will be badly hit as well, as the European Union happens to be one of India's biggest export markets. Indian taxpayers hard-earned money was used to fund rich ROTHSCHILD and ROCKEFELLER banks

          There were two issues that needed to be sorted out. The deficit relating to trust and trade. The combined economies of some 11 trillion dollars and some 4.5 trillion foreign exchange holding can be a real power block in Asia and the World. The Indian demography indicates that they have some 65% of the potion in young age and the trend is likely to continue up to 2030.By then India also will by p Chine in total potion. The one child policy of the Chinese might see that country with less potion and comparatively older people. However,China has compensated the short fall with employing more number of women as compared to India. China has stared the reforms way back in 1970 and due to the authority the administration enjoys they could bring in many things like that of a capitalist economy.Even Singapore had grown under Lee after curtailing the rights of the people for a while. In comparison India suffers from the demerits of the democracy than merits. The democracy becomes an impediment when it develops a strong destructive opposition, hopefully Modiji will over come that sooner the better.
