OLPC & India

I was going to write about this very important piece of news on why the move by India is a great one albeit not completely for the reason mentioned by Sandeep Bhattacharjee but then I decided to wait because I was more than certain that the master (IMHO) in these matter will definitely speak and thus he spake.

       OLPC is not good for developing nation because of  its huge opportunity cost.

I would say no more go read the complete post for yourself because I could have not explained it more lucidly then he did (especially the concept of opportunity cost is not understood well, even many of  best economists in the world don’t understand it right)
