India’s brain reserves  

Edward Hugh provides some extraordinary data on India’s brain reserves, via a Morgan Stanley report:

  As per NASSCOM, the number of students being admitted for engineering studies in India will increase to 600,000 by 2004 compared with 455,000 in 2000.
  Every year, India adds about 2.3 million English-speaking graduates (15 years education). This compares with around 1.2 million graduates every year in US.
  India’s population in the 15-64 age group will rise to 758 million and in the 25-59 age group to 501 million. The bulge will be in the age category of 15-24 years. This bracket will have 223 million people by 2010, up from the current 186 million.

You do the math 

I’ve been having an email exchange with the wonderful British Politics on electoral maths in the US presidential race. I can highly recommend Dave Leip’s Atlas of US Presidential Elections for any amateur psephologists.
