BRICs: The Business Model of the World

On a less serious and less conceptual/analytical note than usual I thought I'd post a blog on how Brazil, Russia, India and China (the so-called BRICs countries) are increasingly resembling something like the business model of the world. Brazil is the resource warehouse of the world, China the factory for the globe, India the think tank and Russia the petrol pump of the global economy... A Goldman Sachs study argues that in less than 40 years the BRICs economies together could be larger than the G6 in US dollar terms.

=> I have the feeling there's some serious business model innovation required for the incumbent economies ;-)
