Winds of Change

 

Economic powerhouses beware; there’s a new kid on the block and he’s ready to play. Actually, make that a few new kids.

 

Author Antoine van Agtmael hit the nail on the head when he coined the phrase “emerging markets” decades ago. This term, accurately replacing what was formerly labeled “Third World,” describes the shift that is occurring in the global market. According to van Agtmael, these emerging markets will have claimed fifty percent of the global economy within the next quarter centaury. His book gold medal winning book, The Emerging Markets Century: How a New Breed of World-Class Companies Is Overtaking the World, describes how countries like Brazil, India, and China have scaled the economic ladder and how they will continue to do so. Drawing upon years of experience and knowledge, van Agtmael also informs readers of how understanding this growth is crucial to understanding globalization in the future as well as the fate of the Western influence.
