At a time of historic shifts in the underlying dynamics of the world economy, not to mention great uncertainties hanging over the course of economic policy, Jim O Neill provides a critical roadmap to understanding what really matters over the next several years and beyond. --Jeffrey Garten, Juan Trippe Professor of International Trade and Finance; Former Undersecretary of Commerce for International Trade, Clinton Administration
Jim O Neill can claim credit for transforming a debate and coining a term that has entered our lexicon: BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China). Here he shares a range of insights as to why these large economies are not the powers of the future, but the powers of the present --Linda Yueh, Chief Business Correspondent for BBC News
In this physically slim but seriously thought-provoking book, Jim O Neill suggests the key policy lessons of the success of the BRICs and other fast-growing emerging market and developing economies for the advanced countries. It is a subject we all need to understand, and this is a very good place to start. --Stanley Fischer, former Governor of the Bank of Israel, former Number 2 at the International Monetary Fund, and former Chief Economist at the World Bank
