Indian Oil, extroverts, school teachers and prison October 14, 2006

Posted by Sharath Rao in America, economics, ideas, india.

There is no way perhaps to connect the 4 phrases in the post title other than reading this post !

So here, goes, I had no idea about this.

Sitting on the edge of the water in the Gulf of Kutch on India’s western shore is one of America’s dirty secrets. A mass of steel pipes and concrete boxes stretches across 13 square miles (33sq km) – a third of the area of Manhattan – which will eventually become the world’s largest petrochemical refinery. The products from the Jamnagar complex are for foreign consumption. When complete, the facility will be able to refine 1.24m barrels of crude a day. Two-fifths of this gasoline will be sent 9,000 miles (15,000km) by sea to America.

The company’s ambitions in Jamnagar have helped India move from being a net importer to an exporter of refined petroleum products.

Ofcourse that Jamnagar is one of world’s largest refineries was never a secret. Its the stuff in bold that is hard to believe.

And who says there is no red-tape in America. Here is how to fire a public school teacher in America. If you dont have the time to read through this whole process, can you imagine someone could actually go through it !

Here is someone on why extroverts get more than their share of stuff and why they shouldnt.

Who says there is no such thing as free lunch ? Was it Milton Friedman ?
