Emerging Markets Archive
Emerging markets represent the biggest growth opportunity of our lifetime. Brazil, Russia, India and China (the BRICs) will account for 25% of global GDP in 2011, up from 11% in 1990. And by 2050, that figure will rise to 40%, according to Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS). Also, consider that public debt in industrialized countries is over 90% of GDP – and is projected to increase dramatically to almost 110% of GDP in the next five years, according to the IMF. By contrast, in emerging markets, public debt is equal to just 38% of GDP and projected to decrease to 34% over the same period of time. You simply can’t pass on this historic profit opportunity.
