Indian private sector urged to adopt affirmative action
Leave it to the Indians to find a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Although their government is among the most dysfunctional, corrupt, and poorly performing on the planet, the Prime Minister (instead of doing something about this) is browbeating corporate India to adopt the same affirmative action programs for "scheduled castes" and "scheduled tribes" that have failed so spectacularly and consistently in Indian education and government. Imagine how fast India could grow if the lead weight of government was removed?
