In 2001, Jim O'Neill predicted the fastest growing economies of
the past decade. Now he's back to explore the new growth markets we
should all be watching closely today.
It's been ten years since Jim O'Neill conceived of the BRIC
acronym. He and his team made a startling prediction: Four
developing nations- Brazil, Russia, India, and China (the
BRICs)-would overtake the six largest Western economies within
forty years. The BRIC analysis permanently changed the world of
global investing, and its accuracy has stood the test of time.
"The Growth Map" features O'Neill's personal account of the BRIC
phenomenon, how it has evolved, and where those four key nations
currently stand after a turbulent decade. And the book also offers
an equally bold prediction about the "Next Eleven" countries:
Bangladesh, Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan,
Philippines, South Korea, Turkey, and Vietnam. These developing
nations may not seem exceptional today, but they offer exciting
opportunities for investors over the next decade, just as BRIC did
O'Neill also shares several compelling insights about the world
economy. He reveals the value for growing countries in being
"willing to play" by meaningfully committing to policies that
encourage further growth and engagement with globalization. He
explains how the g20 can adjust to better incorporate the BRICs and
to better reflect the balance of the global economy.
Finally, O'Neill makes the counterintuitive claim that good
things can quite often come from crises. While established economic
powers may see the rise of the BRICs as a threat, international
trade benefits us all over the long term. Likewise, the recent
financial crisis revealed deep problems in our economic systems,
problems we now have the opportunity to fix.
A work of astute and absorbing analysis, "The Growth Map" is an
indispensable guide for every investor and every participant in the
global economy. Anyone who wants to understand the developing world
would do well to heed the man called "one of the most sought-after
economic commentators on the planet." ("The Telegraph")
