The Economy and the State: BRICS, MINTs and the Triad.
Retrieval â€“ Summer 2015
Cardiff Metropolitan University
It may be argued that the global business environment is experiencing a shift in the balance of power away from the dominance of the triad economies (USA, Europe and Japan) to the emerging and transition economies of the BRICS and possibly the MINT countries. Some analysts believe that China will overtake the USA as the worldâ€™s largest economy (measured by GDP) by 2050 (PwC, 2015).
It is evident that we are living in a period of transition and change, as history tells us that economic powers rise and fall. Nations that are currently strong economically may see their influence diminish, whilst emerging economies will begin to dominate the global business environment, and consequently shape its future. This will inevitably impact on the way in which business is conducted in the mid to late 21st century. For example will the global business environment continue to be dominated by the West and in particular the United States of America?
The global business environment in the mid to late 21st century will no longer be dominated by the major Triad economies of the 20th century and there will be a shift in power towards the emerging and transition economies such as the BRICS nations.
