Copiar a los occidentales se ha vuelto tabu, pero que tal si imitamos a naciones del tercer mundo que esta saliendo adelante. El ejemplo de DEhli en India y de su Ministra son increibles ha mezclado privatizacion con mejoramiento del servicio de la burocracia a los ciudadanos. No como en nuestro pais donde no queremos privatizar nada y los ciudadanos servimos a los burocratas como empleados.

Creating a modern Indian city: An interview with Delhi’s chief minister
Sheila Dikshit discusses the challenge of urban development in India.
Web exclusive, October 2007
Delhi is a rarity on the Indian landscape: a symbol of urban progress rather than urban decay. And for almost a decade, Sheila Dikshit has presided over the nation’s capital as its chief minister.
Dikshit, nearing the end of an unprecedented second term, has helped guide an array of economic and political changes. Under her watch, the first phase of the Delhi Metro was completed on budget and on time—a feat heralded as belying the stereotype of the Indian government’s inefficiency. The second phase is on track to be completed in time for the Commonwealth Games, scheduled to take place in the city in 2010.
Also during her tenure, power distribution has been privatized, pollution reduced, and green areas throughout the city increased. Students at government schools are performing better. In addition, Dikshit has attempted to lessen the tensions between the bureaucracy and citizens through an initiative that brings both sides together for regular discussions. Bhagidari, as it is called, has been held up as an international model of good governance.
Yet Dikshit would be among the first to acknowledge that progress has not come fast enough or without snags. Delhi is straining under the weight of a vast and growing population. More than 13 million1 people live there, and half a million more move in every year. Decision making can be excruciatingly slow, especially since her administration shares authority in the city with elected municipal leaders and a lieutenant governor appointed by India’s president.
