India’s IT Professionals More Valuable Than Wall Street Investment Bankers

Here is some stats, purely from a relative per capita perspective:

Indian IT industry makes revenues of 76 Billion on an employee base of 2.54 Million.
So industry per capita revenue: USD 29921.

Per Capita of average Indian: 1134 USD.

So the average IT professional, in per capita terms, provides 26 times more output in dollar terms than the average Indian.

But Wall Street Investment Bankers make a total revenue contribution of 20.58 Billion USDs, with an employee base of 162,200. So that is a per capita contribution of 123456 USDs. But US Per capita income is 45989 USDs.

So the average Investment Banker on Wall Street, in per capita terms, provides just 2.6 times more output in dollar terms than the average American.

That is quite a difference.

Japan’s Earthquake Impact: Just One-Fifth Of US War Budget For 2011

This from AIR Worldwide: “Based on currently available information, catastrophe modeling firm AIR Worldwide estimates that insured property losses from the Mw9.1 earthquake that struck Japan on Friday will range between 1.2 trillion JPY to 2.8 trillion JPY.

USA Entitlement Spending equals India’s GDP

Talking about scale, this one is a stunner – remember, India has a population of more than 1.2 billion, compared to the U.S population of 300 million. The stat is a little old, but the scale holds.

Going through Mary Meeker’s USA INc report, we spotted this statistic:

“USA Entitlement Spending equals India’s GDP”


With a population of 1.2 billion (vs. USA’s 310 million) and 2010 GDP growth of 10% (vs. USA’s 3%), India is a well recognized emerging country on the global stage.

It’s notable that India’s 2010 nominal GDP* of $1.43 trillion was equal to USA’s $1.43 trillion in federal government spending on Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.
