As President Obama continues his conversations with Americans, with stops in Iowa and Virginia today, we wanted to take a moment and go global.  What do the growing middle classes in other countries look like, and what do they strive for? Today, we're focusing on India and China, two of the world's burgeoning societies. 

To help us look at both countries, we're joined by Vishakha Desai, president of Asia Society. We also talk with someone who's lived in the middle class in both China and India. Aadil Ebrahim recently moved from Hong Kong to Mumbai, where he works for an investment asset management firm.
