Tomorrow's Asia dispels some of the statements that have been made about Asia and in particular its demographics with a more factual analysis of the issue, backed up by real numbers.
* For example, it is believed that there is a rapidly growing middle class in India of 300 million people. This is only if middle-class is defined as having US$2 a day to live on.
* The youth market is touted as the next big growth segment in Asia, but it is the rapidly growing older affluent population that warrants more attention.
* India will be the next China…only if it can educate its growing young population.
* There are millions of millionaires in Asia…not according to GDP measures.
These and many other oft-quoted statements and statistics are busted in this provocative book
