America's export drive

How times have changed ! America has now realised the importance of exports to bolster its economy. (India was always aware of the significance of exports. Remember the slogan "Export or perish" ?)

President Obama in his State of the Union 2010 address has announced "National Export Initiative" to double the country's export in 5 years. The initiative would generate 2 million jobs. He has also highlighted the essence of education. "The best anti-poverty programme around is a world-class education".

On adherence to law, he said "no matter who you are or what you look like, if you abide by the law you should be protected by it." Ancient Indians were more succinct : Dharma protects those who protect it.
