Why is it that United States has won 353 Nobel Prizes but India only eight -1
Answer by Vijay Kamath:
United States spends $405 Billion on Research and Development(R&D) .
India spends $36 Billion. United States spends 10 times more than India on research. Obviously they discover lot of new things. They develop a lot of scientific institutions and scientists who go on to win Nobels.
Why does India spend so little on R&D ? Because India is a poor country.
