Breakout Nations (English) (Hardcover) Price: Rs.664

Published in the year 2012, Breakout Nations: In Search Of The Next Economic Miracles is a book by renowned investor Ruchir Sharma, and speaks about the emerging market in different countries across the globe.

Summary Of The Book

Breakout Nations: In Search Of The Next Economic Miracles is a book that is based on the personal views of the author on the emerging markets worldwide. In this book, the author explains to his readers that the only way to identify breakout nations is to travel and keep their eyes open to see the current factors that influence the market and whether they favor growth. The author provides his readers with information on more than two dozen nations. This information covers aspects such as growth, which has been tremendous in the past decade for these nations.

Through the course of this book, Sharma provides his readers with insight into the nations that have high chances of flourishing. The author also provides simple rules for the common man to understand the potential of a market. He also explains that a nation's government may not have a negative impact on the economy if the economic understanding of the leaders is great. In this book, Sharma also notes that nations such as Nigeria, Philippines, and Sri Lanka seem to be on the right road, along with Indonesia’s “efficient corruption”, which proves to be an improvement over the previous method. As a result of his predictions, Sharma has been regarded as a one-hand economist, who is ready to place his reputation at stake.

The main goal of this book is to provide its readers with an answer to a highly simple, yet complicated question about where the money goes. Breakout Nations: In Search Of The Next Economic Miracles was greatly appreciated by its readers, breaking sales records and turning into an international best-seller. This book also received tremendous global media coverage by The Washington Post, The Economist, and The Wall Street Journal. All in all, this book is a must-have for those who want to gain key insight into the emerging markets across the globe.

this book is a magnum opus and a thriller at that.

Breakout Nations is a book the like of which comes but once very twenty or thirty years only. It is a tour de force as well as a collective pen sketch of most nations of which we can learn so many things from the Author of this work. It reflects his deep learning, acute observation and unbiased are his policy prescriptions. The book should be compulsory reading for all parliamentarians and bureaucrats. The prose is chiseled, racy and often reads like a crime thriller. The book covers every country barring the well known west that wants to grow with the world and enjoy the "goodies' of... ()

Breakout Nations is a book the like of which comes but once very twenty or thirty years only. It is a tour de force as well as a collective pen sketch of most nations of which we can learn so many things from the Author of this work. It reflects his deep learning, acute observation and unbiased are his policy prescriptions. The book should be compulsory reading for all parliamentarians and bureaucrats. The prose is chiseled, racy and often reads like a crime thriller. The book covers every country barring the well known west that wants to grow with the world and enjoy the "goodies' of world trade. His prescription do not offend and his cautionary pleadings are well worth listening to. The central lesson he draws is that no nation can continually succeed without attracting investment, without being innovative and putting in place facilitative systems for growth. I enjoyed reading this Book. A landmark Book indeed, if you are a serious thinker and not the sort who reads Mills & Boon type fluff and is done with book-reading.

Breakout Nations

This is a splendid book written in a simple language.
The print is so small and difficult to read
FLIPKART must not stock such prints which are small print editions....or...mention it clearly that it is a small print

Excellent!

This book is simply fantastic. Style of writing is crisp, clear and to the point.
As the title of the book indicates, it is about search for the next breakout nation. The author dwells deeply into what makes a nation stand out from others. Every country a group of similar countries is discussed in a separate chapter. Stories of success and failure from India, China, Russia, SriLanka, Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, South Africa, Turkey, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Congo, Egypt, Gulf Countries etc a...

The book also dispels several myths that are doing the rounds in our newspapers and TV channels. For example, over hyped version of India's growth story is shattered in this book and the arguments given are very convincing.
A must read for all the economics enthusiasts !

Understanding Economy

Most of us keep reading and hearing to various news on How our economy is doing, why the Oil prices are increasing, why is cost of living higher in Mumbai than NY etc. There are very many formula for arriving at these conclusions. The author takes you through the worlds top 12 countries and their economies and how an "economist" looks at them.

I was reading the preface and then i bought the book and the following day, was reading in Forbes about "Is BRIC a myth?" This book is a suggestive reading to that article.
