BRICs Lay Foundation Stability: Merrill Lynch

BRICs Lay Foundation Stability: Merrill Lynch




Alex Patelis, Head of Global Economics, Merrill Lynch discusses the strength of BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China) countries in the midst of the global credit crisis, and how well suited they are to recover strongly. 

Patelis points out that close to 90% of global GDP growth will come from emerging markets economies in 2009, and goes one step further saying that he would not be surprised if global growth would come exclusively from emerging markets. They are underlevered, strong domestic economies, where consumption growth is being fuelled by income growth, and strong savings rates. In particular, he favours China and India.
