Rural India ~ Knowledge@Wharton + WSJournal

Cool to see what Wharton is doing in emerging markets, including this Rural India collaboration with the WSJournal...
"Knowledge@Wharton is delighted to unveil a new initiative that aims to shed light on one of the most intriguing areas of the global economy: rural India. In collaboration with The Wall Street Journal, we are pleased to offer a unique collection of interviews, articles, analysis, video and opinion pieces to help you learn about the contradictions, opportunities and difficulties in a region that is home to some 700 million of India's 1.2 billion people. We know this in-depth content will be of interest to many, especially since Monday's Indian budget announcement showed that rural India will be the focus of this government's five years in office. Some of the material has been specially commissioned for the site, and some is from the archives..."
