International Bestseller One of Foreign Policy's "21 Books to Read in 2012" A Publishers Weekly Top 10 Business Book “The best book on global economic trends I’ve read in a while.”—Fareed Zakaria, CNN GPS To identify the economic stars of the future we should abandon the habit of extrapolating from the recent past and lumping wildly diverse countries together. We need to remember that sustained economic success is a rare phenomenon. After years of rapid growth, the most celebrated emerging markets—Brazil, Russia, India, and China—are about to slow down. Which countries will rise to challenge them? In his best-selling book, writer and investor Ruchir Sharma identifies which countries are most likely to leap ahead and why, drawing insights from time spent on the ground and detailed demographic, political, and economic analysis. With a new chapter on America’s future economic prospects, Breakout Nations offers a captivating picture of the shifting balance of global economic power among emerging nations and the West.

'The old rule of forecasting was to make as many forecasts as possible and publicise the ones you got right. The new rule is to forecast so far in the future, no one will know you got it wrong.' Ruchir Sharma does neither. In Breakout Nations he shows why the economic 'mania' of the twenty-first century, with its unshakeable faith in the power of emerging markets - especially China - to continue growing at the astoundingly rapid and uniform pace of the last decade, is wrong. The next economic success stories will not be where we think they are. In this provocative new book, Sharma analyses why the basic laws of economic gravity (such as the law of large numbers, which says that the richer you are the harder it is to grow your wealth at a rapid pace) are already pulling China, Russia, Brazil and other vast emerging markets back to earth. To understand which nations will thrive and which will falter in a world reshaped by slower growth, it is time to start looking at the emerging markets as individual cases. Sharma argues that we must abandon our current obsession with global macro trends and the fad for all-embracing theories. He offers instead a more discerning, nuanced view, identifying specific factors - economic, political, social - which will make for slow or fast growth. Spending much of his professional life travelling in these countries as Head of Emerging Markets at Morgan Stanley, Sharma is uniquely placed to present a first-hand insider's account of these new markets and the changes they are undergoing. As the years of unbelievably swift growth draw to their close, this book shows us how it is time for both investors and economists to halt their blind thrust towards an impossible future.

International Bestseller "Quite simply the best guide to the global economy today." —Fareed Zakaria Shaped by his twenty-five years traveling the world, and enlivened by encounters with villagers from Rio to Beijing, tycoons, and presidents, Ruchir Sharma’s The Rise and Fall of Nations rethinks the "dismal science" of economics as a practical art. Narrowing the thousands of factors that can shape a country’s fortunes to ten clear rules, Sharma explains how to spot political, economic, and social changes in real time. He shows how to read political headlines, black markets, the price of onions, and billionaire rankings as signals of booms, busts, and protests. Set in a post-crisis age that has turned the world upside down, replacing fast growth with slow growth and political calm with revolt, Sharma’s pioneering book is an entertaining field guide to understanding change in this era or any era.

Jim O'Neill, one of the most influential economists today, shares his insights on how and why he developed one of the most compelling economic concepts of our time in The Growth Map. 'O'Neill has redefined how investors and Western business leaders see the world. This book tells the unlikely story of how O'Neill developed this path-breaking idea . . . lively, powerful and highly accessible' Gillian Tett, Financial Times Ten years ago, Jim O'Neill predicted that globalization would help Brazil, Russia, India and China (the BRICs) - busy, ambitious countries full of raw materials - overtake the largest Western economies. With all four BRIC nations set to do just that, no other idea has proved as significant for the new century. But these changes have provoked business and political uncertainty and in The Growth Map O'Neill examines what is coming next. Can the BRICs sustain their exceptional growth? Which nations will come next? And what, for all of us, does the future hold? 'Goldman Sachs' rock star' Business Week 'Sharp, shrewd. Tells the big story of our time. The fundamental shift of economic power from the West' Niall Ferguson 'O'Neill has changed how the world thinks about economic growth - and how the BRICs think about themselves' Lloyd Blankfein, Chairman And Ceo, Goldman Sachs 'One of the most sought-after economic commentators on the planet' Daily Telegraph Jim O'Neill is Chairman of Goldman Sachs Asset Management. He joined Goldman Sachs in 1995, rising to chief economist, and in 2001 he led the team that conducted the original BRIC analysis. He is chairman of the charity SHINE, and a member of the boards of the UK Royal Economic Society, Itinera and Bruegel. He has a lifelong passion for Manchester United FC, and has served as a non-executive director of the club's board.

You see it in every business paper or magazine. You hear it on every financial talk show. You are deluged with “facts” presented as certainty: China will be the number one economy. The BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China) will continue to outstrip the developed world in growth for decades to come. Emerging markets are therefore a sure bet for making money and should be part of every portfolio. But is it true? Emerging markets undoubtedly present one of the most exciting investment opportunities that has occurred over the last twenty years. But so was the U.S. housing market—if you knew when to get in and get out. Emerging markets are no different. To understand them you have to understand that they are different. You have to understand that you are not on Wall Street anymore. Different rules apply. And there are not only vast differences between developed and emerging markets, but vast differences among emerging markets themselves. The opportunities and risks are substantial and vary enormously between countries. Investing in Emerging Markets will help the retail investor, the more sophisticated money manager, and the prospective international businessperson to get beyond the hype, the marketing, and the dreams to understand the real risks and to take advantage of the real opportunities. This book: Provides an overview of the emerging markets prime for investing Outlines the snares awaiting the unwary Guides novice investors and professionals alike Shows how to make money by carefully selecting markets for investment

Symbolic resources affect social, cultural, and economic development. The value of being "Made in America" or "Made in Italy," for example, depends not only on the material advantages each place offers but also on the symbolic resources embedded in those places of production. Drawing on case studies that range from the vineyards of South Africa and the textiles of Thailand to the Mundo Maya in Latin America and tourist destinations in Tuscany, this volume examines the various forms that cultural wealth takes, the processes involved in its construction, and the ways it is deployed. Leading scholars from a range of disciplinary backgrounds examine how symbolic resources and cultural understandings help firms and regions develop. Through a thoughtful analysis of current- day cases, as well as historical developments, The Cultural Wealth of Nations offers an exciting new alternative to standard economic explanations about the wealth and poverty of nations.

Country risk explains the things that can go wrong when business is conducted across borders. It's not just multinational companies, with factories worldwide and complex operations, that need to understand sudden changes in business conditions. These can affect any small firm that may be looking to expand sales abroad or work with a foreign supplier. The 2008-09 global financial crisis and the Arab Spring showed us how quickly and dramatically business conditions in any country can worsen and spread. But a thorough understanding and careful management of country risk will help a company survive a crisis—and even open up new opportunities. The Economist Guide to Country Risk explains: What risks foreign investors face, and how to measure and manage them in a systematic way. Why political and economic shocks are so hard to predict. Where economies are vulnerable and how existing risk models spot (or miss) signs of impending disaster. The typical bad habits of managers who ignore the warning signs. How and where the next crisis will emerge.
