Breakout Nations: In search of the Next Economic Miracles (Hardcover) Price: Rs.489

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... ()

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.

Unbiased and to the point

The author is known for his simple and effective language. I bought this book due to his reputation of writing factual and to the point analysis of the global economic happenings and situations. He carries the same style in the book to a large extent. The book is about analysis of different nations on multitude of parameters, assessing their strengths and weaknesses based on their past performance, culture and political & industrial leadership.

What I liked was the unbiased opinion. There is no leaning towards any particular economic theory or needless indulgence in any country or culture bashing. He speaks harshly of India at many places. Although that is fairly justified given the deplorable state of affairs that has been order of the day since last half a decade.
The book is for serious reading. It has facts and figures but the core of the book lies in analysing them in context. A good book indeed.

Apart from the style and content of the book, the author needs to be also lauded for his efforts at selling his work through the right channels with his frequent appearances on prime time television talk shows.This was done as a repetitive promotional effort right through the initial phase of its launch in India.

A practical look at economic growth

This book is important for all those interested in understanding today's world economy in simple terms. Written from the point of view of an investment banker, the focus is clearly on the factors that have affected the macroeconomic parameters of different countries in the so-called "emerging markets" of the world. Market maturity and per capita GDP have been used to classify different countries, and the factors promoting and inhibiting their growth have been identified in simple language. Based on this analysis, the author has predicted the future GDP growth of these countries. T... ()

This book is important for all those interested in understanding today's world economy in simple terms.

Market maturity and per capita GDP have been used to classify different countries, and the factors promoting and inhibiting their growth have been identified in simple language. Based on this analysis, the author has predicted the future GDP growth of these countries. The analysis is practical, and for Indians is an eye-opener of sorts because a person familiar with India has dispassionately analysed the macroeconomic conditions of the country in simple language, and has avoided starry-eyed or pessimistic conclusions.
