A Publishers Weekly Top 10 Business Book


“The best book on global economic trends I’ve read in a while.”—Fareed Zakaria, CNN GPS

To identify the economic stars of the future we should abandon the habit of extrapolating from the recent past and lumping wildly diverse countries together. We need to remember that sustained economic success is a rare phenomenon. After years of rapid growth, the most celebrated emerging markets—Brazil, Russia, India, and China—are about to slow down. Which countries will rise to challenge them? In his best-selling book, writer and investor Ruchir Sharma identifies which countries are most likely to leap ahead and why, drawing insights from time spent on the ground and detailed demographic, political, and economic analysis.


With a new chapter on America’s future economic prospects, Breakout Nations offers a captivating picture of the shifting balance of global economic power among emerging nations and the West.

Good but...

Interesting book, however, he has been proved wrong on countries like Egypt and his position on austerity (Kenneth R has been incorrect). It is surprising that he does not mention Panama, which has been growing at a rate higher than 7%. When it comes to the next boom, innovation, he does not even mention Israel!!! Which is the only country that can brag of being close to Silicon Valley.
