There is a secret sauce when it comes to Indian immigrants in the United States and other parts of the world. I do not say this because I’m myself an Indian-American who has pride or faith in this special sauce, or happens to make more than even the Indian-American average salary. It’s according to the hard data and this pole position spreads all the way back to the 20th century, meaning this is no Johnny-Come-Lately phenomenon. And it’s not even close! Indian-Americans are so dominant on average household income that second place needs a telescope to see us, as Elon Musk would say.
It doesn’t just happen. There is a culture behind the success. Watch this excellent and recent video by someone who isn’t Indian on the Valuetainment YouTube channel, Patrick Bet-David as he delves into the details. Many of us brown folk will find the reasons sounding familiar from our own upbringing: Indians arrive on US shores already fluent in English; they aren’t afraid of exceedingly hard work, pursuing higher education especially in challenging technical STEM subjects, and the inspiring stories of strivers who came across the oceans for a better life for themselves and their progeny with just $2 in their pockets, though it’s an exceedingly hard journey and culture shock to overcome. But I don’t want to give it all away here. Watch on to learn much more- it could help you earn a higher level of $$$ too regardless of your ethnicity:
I will take the lower pay. lol
