Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0815725108, Hardcover)

Despite the international economic strain and fiscal austerity rampant in recent years, the economies of China and India have grown at an amazing rate. Any Western corporation, investor, or entrepreneur serious about competing internationally must deal effectively with those nations. Unfortunately, many in the West still look at the two Asian giants as monoliths, closely controlled and monitored by national authorities. Inside Out, India and China makes clear how and why this notion is outdated.

William Antholis spent five months on a study tour of India and China. He completely immersed himself in the business, governance, and culture of these nations, temporarily relocating his entire family to Asia. His travels, research, and interviews with key stakeholders make the unmistakable point that these nations are not the immobile, centrally directed economies and structures of the past.

More and more, key policy decisions in India and China are formulated and implemented by governments or structures at the subnational level. Controlled economies are being replaced by entrepreneurship in the private sector. Antholis's detailed narratives of innovation and entrepreneurship at the subnational level make the point crystal clear —just as understanding how Washington alone works is insufficient for doing business successfully in America, simply maintaining a presence in Beijing and New Delhi is not enough to ensure success in China or India, respectively. These are large, vibrant, innovative, diverse, and increasingly decentralized nations. Organizations, businesses, and other governments that do not recognize and plan for this evolution are doomed to fail in the most populous region in the world —an unacceptable outcome in a globalizing world.
