Hi

I came across this TED talk which might be of some interest to some of you.

http://www.ted.com/talks/geoffrey_west_the_surprising_math_of_cities_and_corporations.html?utm_source=newsletter_weekly_2011-07-26&utm_campaign=newsletter_weekly&utm_medium=email

I suspect Bangalore is quite a bit off the line. The `hope' is that perhaps in the future things will stabilize and perhaps we will be in line with the rest. Though I dont know if its a good thing for Bangalore to be like the other cities of 10 million. I suspect the same numbers dont apply to cities in India since populations are of a different scale. Nevertheless, it makes interesting viewing - especially to people interested in the development of cities and perhaps can be a little damaging to their perception of their impact. I suppose it is also interesting to people who invest.
