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.

Understanding EconomyMost 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.

AwesomeWell researched. Though it concentrates mainly on the infrastructure view, it delves in depth into each country's past and then its progress. A must read for all those who would like to look deeper into a country's growth.

Must Read!Very concisely and accurately written. There are enough facts mentioned so as to believe the subject text believable, but not too many so as to make it a boring affair. All emerging countries have been covered without any sense of prejudice.
