India’s Woes Reflected in Bid to Restart Old Enron Plant

    This says it all. “

State authorities promise to have the plant running at 100 percent by
the end of the month. But, so far, this plant remains a monument not to
the problems of Enron, but to India’s
own corruption, cronyism and weak economic policies — some of the
reasons that India remains a perpetual second fiddle to China, its
increasingly powerful rival.
For all the progress India has made in information technology and
service-sector jobs, the country is still unable to provide reliable
power, water, roads and other basic infrastructure to most of its 1.2
billion people. For instance, about 40 percent of the country’s
population is not connected to the electricity grid.”
