India’s population explosion will make or break its economy

India’s demographics are mind-boggling: By 2020, it will have 900 million people of working age, and the average age of its citizens will fall to 29. Two years later, it should pass China to become the world’s most populous country.
This army of workers — tens of millions of young people enter the workforce each year — could be the key that finally unlocks India’s vast potential. Millions will be lifted out of poverty if they’re able to find good jobs.
But unless India makes big improvements in how it educates and trains students, this demographic boom could instead saddle the country with another generation of unskilled workers destined to languish in low-paying jobs.
