Business Standard: “Even as the number of Indian students opting for higher education overseas grows annually, their abroad spending is set to grow from current annual $28 billion to $80 billion by 2024, the latest ‘Higher Education Abroad’ report by consulting firm RedSeer estimates. According to the report, the number of Indian students opting for higher education abroad grew from 440,000 in 2016 to 770,000 in 2019 and is set to grow further to roughly 1.8 million by 2024, resulting in an increased overseas spending on higher education. Compared to this, the number of students domestically increased from 37 million to roughly 40 million between 2016 and 2019.”

Lawrence E. Harrison and Samuel P. Huntington: “Prosperity helps create space in people’s hearts and minds so that they may develop a healthy emotional and spiritual life, according to their preferences, unfettered by everyday concerns of the material goods they require to survive.” [via CafeHayek]

David Perell: “When we pursue optionality, we avoid bold decisions. Like anything meaningful, venturing into the unknown is an act of faith. It demands responsibility. You‘ll have to take a stand, trust your decision, and ignore the taunts of outside dissent. But a life without conviction is a life controlled by the futile winds of fashion. Meaning and commitment are two sides of the same coin. The act of committing to something — a business, a child, a relationship, a place, or a community — brings forth the kind of meaning that so many people are starving for these days.”
