Robert Crane, "Building Bridges Among the BRICs"
English | 2014 | ISBN: 1137375388 | 216 pages | PDF | 1,3 MB

The term 'BRICs' was coined at Goldman-Sachs some 20 years ago to designate four 'developing countries' which were developing much faster than others. They were developing so fast, in fact, that popular wisdom came to believe that first, Brazil, Russia, India, and China would become the dynamos of the world economy and second, that they would come to dominate it. With almost two decades of hindsight, we now perceive that neither statement is completely true, nor completely false. While the four nations have largely driven world economic growth in recent years, all four national economies are noticeably cooling in the middle of the second decade of the 21st century.

All four authors of Building Bridges Among the BRICs take a close look at the national culture of their nations with their strengths and weaknesses for politics and business. They examine the origins of these cultures from the historical and geographical perspectives. Then, from their differing viewpoints, they seek to project the likelihood of their country working successfully with the other three. Finally, they examine what has actually happened on the ground. Have Indian companies worked successfully with companies from Russia, China, or Brazil? If so, how? If not, why not?
