7 Indians who made it to Time's 100 most influential list

Terming Rajan as India's prescient banker, Time said he is among a rare breed of economic seers who he steered India through the global crisis and fallout, playing a large role in making it one of the emerging-market stars of the moment. While serving as the youngest chief economist of the IMF from 2003 to 2006, Time said Rajan predicted the subprime crisis that would lead to the Great Recession, standing up to critics like former US Treasury Secretary Larry Summers, who labeled him a Luddite.Since then, more and more of the economic establishment has come to share Rajans view that debt-fueled growth is just a saccharine substitute for the real thing, Time said.
