People have misconception about Growth
Marc Faber : Concerning growth, first of all in India and elsewhere among people who invest in India, the view was that India could be the fastest growing economy in the world in the next 5-10 years. I do not think so. That is overly optimistic and overly optimistic expectations. If India, let us take worst and best case. Worst case India grows at 3-4 percent per annum. Best case it grows at 8 percent. Both are not very likely. So let us assume it grows at 4-5 percent per annum. That is still a fantastic growth rate compared to other countries, compared to the whole of Western Europe, compared to the United States. People have misconception about growth; they think that an economy can grow at 8-9 percent forever, that is not the case, it is not possible. So, I am happy if India grows say at, 4-5 percent per annum.
