  1. Dear Kyle,

    Interesting article on an ID for the US, but 12 years since the Real ID law and several states still being given a reprieve does not bode well. On your statement that India started from a much lower base than the US I have to correct you. Less than 1/10th of one percent of the people enrolled in Aadhaar did not have proof of identity. Cf. http://thewire.in/2015/06/03/most-aadhar-cards-issued-to-those-who-already-have-ids-3108/.

    Best wishes,

    Thanks for that. My impression of India’s population’s proof of identity came from Economist articles. I’m not sure if they got it wrong or I just misinterpreted, but I’m glad to be corrected.
