A Pakistani's flattering compliment to an Indian

Here is the statement of a Pakistani's flattering compliment to an Indian. If he is correct I am so proud. Someone who has been to ground zero (example: market frequented by both Indians and Pakistanis) should tell if he is right or wrong. If the information is authentic, it means Indians are smart spenders.

if the Chinese labelled their goods honestly, Many Pakistanis would steer clear from it..Pakistan unlike India is not a cheapskate market...Pakistanis have high sense of quality..they have been known to pay top dollar for quality...

Don't be so happy. The actual reason for 'smart-spending' may be unflattering. There may be more poverty in India and probably that's why people are more frugal in spending money.

The cost of living in Bangalore was probably normal like elsewhere in India before the Information Technology boom. With the IT boom salaries went up and probably as a consequence the cost of living in Bangalore.

Yeah. May be true. An example similar to the case of Bangalore: Goa has a different culture from Bangalore and Goans have a different psyche from Bangaloreans. But what actually decides the cost of living and cost of various commodities and services is not psyche or culture but factors like flow of money from spendthrift Western countries. Bangalore gets a lot of Western money through InfoTech companies. Goa gets a lot of money through Western tourists. In both places you get fleeced for nothing.

A tidbit relevant to this topic: It is said that fares of Pakistani airlines were cheaper in 1990s.
