Explanations

Do you know your BRICs from your MINTs?

Andy Day

12th February 2017

Economist Jim O'Neill coined the acronym BRIC economies in reference to the potential might of Brazil, Russia, India and China as dominant economies of the twenty-first century. But in these radio broadcasts he explores his latest group: the MINTs

As we enter a fast-changing economic global community, some countries are experiencing loss of dominance, others are strengthening, and a few are on the fast-track to growth. In these 45 minute broadcasts on BBC Radio 4, Jim O'Neill explores the basis of four Emerging Economies (EEs) that may play a significant role in globalisation as the century unfolds: the MINTs, or Mexico, Indonesia, Nigeria and Turkey
