    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 co...

    recommended

    Breakout Nations discusses who is likely to be the next economic juggernaut in the emerging world market. The book looks at the infrastructure, governments, economic problems and various other factors that may contribute to the rise and fall of investment opportunities in these markets. However that is not to say that it is filled with a lot of economic jargon. The writing avoids prolixity and is simple and clear for everyone to understand. By the time you finish the book, you should have a p...

    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 r...

    Insightful..!!

    The credentials of Ruchir Sharma are well known. That he is the head of Emerging Markets Equity team at Morgan Stanley speaks volumes about his capabilities and his exposure to International markets.Yet with all the expertise, he has kept the language of the book quite lucid and easy to understand(but still full of insights). Many people who might be unaware of the jargon in financial world, might still find the content easy to comprehend. And the way he has used the country specific lore and...

    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...
