The story of U.S.-India relations is one of unfulfilled potential. Despite their common commitment to democracy, diversity, and free markets, the two countries’ short- and long-term objectives have not aligned in a way that creates a robust economic and political partnership. Soon to be the second and third largest economies in the world, they still struggle to find ways to increase their economic integration despite robust collaboration in the areas of technology, life sciences, and defense.
Examining the bilateral partnership from the perspectives of investment, public policy, and philanthropy, Acharya delves into ways in which India can strive towards an aspirational goal of $1 trillion worth of economic ties with the U.S. by 2030. Backed by 62 interviews with leaders from business, government, civil society, and academia, and 30 case studies on the growing impact of American organisations on the Indian economy and of Indians on the American economy, this study highlights those that are inspirational models for their sectors and are aiming at realising a trillion-dollar, long-term economic partnership between India and America.
