Trade Frauds

In Tamil, there is a saying that as long as there is one to get cheated, there will be people who continue to take them for a ride.  These days, I am hearing lot of incidents of people being taken for a ride.  Earlier, we used to get such incidents from poor countries of the world whereas now cheaters are from rich countries as well.  I am yet to understand this pattern but things are on the rise.  In this post, I am examining the issue and what to do in case one is defrauded!

What do we learn from the Chinese?

Ever wondered how China has become such a major power in economy, sports or in diplomacy in a matter of roughly 2 to 3 decades. This question always used to bother me a lot. A country which was equal or less than in India till 1978 leap frogged in to world stage. In the process lifting out 50% of its population from poverty and subsistence living. The only country that can be compared with India is China, no body else in terms population and concomitant problems.
