That's why you have more than one of those. And outsource to the telecom company.
(I haven't migrated to the US, but I am working outside India.)
What drives someone in India to come to the US, rather than improving their situation at home?
Money. Indian salaries are still very low as compared to US salaries, especially in Silicon Valley. Improving your situation at home means that you do the same job for a third of the money (at best), or less (usually about a 5th to a 10th).
Keep in mind that the wage gap in India is huge, unlike the US. This means that someone with 15 to 20 years of experience will have a roughly comparable salary, but for a fresher, the salary gap is 10x or more. (Rule of thumb, a job change gets you a 30% salary increase, you change jobs every two or three years. Not true for everyone, but often the case).
A few years ago, it was possible to move to the US for three years, live cheap, return to India and buy an apartment cash down. That's not possible now, it takes 6 years. If you are living in India, you might save up enough for the down-payment in 15 or 20 years, if you give up on most fun parts of life.
A hardware technician. You don't need that many of those.
Or you virtualise as much as possible, and then you need even fewer hands on site.
Isn't that just income tax though? There are other taxes, and CEOs aren't always paid in cash terms.
So a historically poor and oppressed group of people shows more violence than their richer counterparts?
Also Arunachal Pradesh.
Yay! Another Freefall fan!
Pollution is tied to quality of life, which is tied to energy consumption per capita.
GDP is really not a relevant measure, except in terms of being able to purchase that energy.
s/sales/capital gains/, defined as net worth now - net worth at the same time last year.
That drives the taxes to the people who can afford to pay them.
Yeah. Which is why I would rather the western world get some culture
Obligatory xkcd: Sysadmins
Having access to the Internet isn't sufficient if you have no encouragement to actually use it. If you don't know that you can apply to a good school and get grants, you never will.
Poverty drives a number of behaviours (and lack of information), whiich lead to a cycle of being poor again. Education is one of those things where you really don't want local taxes funding schools, just fund them all equally well on the educational side of things.
This needs paper and pencil, but it's an easy explanation (even if imperfect).
If you draw a graph of temperature vs time, you will see a wave pattern emerge over a few years. Global warming implies that there is more energy in the atmosphere, so the amplitude of the wave will increase. This means summers get hotter and winters get colder.
The scientific debate is about how much of an amplitude change will result, and what the consequences of that will be (we don't know this yet).
