FCC club lunch with Ruchir SHARMA
Speaker: Ruchir SHARMA
Managing Director, Head of Global Emerging Markets Equity team
Morgan Stanley Investment Management
Topic: Breakout Nations: in pursuit of the next economic miracles
Mr. SHARMA will talk about the main themes in his new bestseller, “Breakout Nations: In Pursuit of the Next Economic Miracles”, for example that the astonishingly rapid growth over the last decade of the world’s celebrated emerging markets is coming to an end. He feels that the era of easy money and easy growth is over. China, in particular, will soon slow, but its place will not necessarily be taken by Brazil, Russia or India. To identify the economic stars of the future, the speaker feels we should abandon the habit of simply extrapolating from general global trends and look at emerging markets individually. The new ‘breakout nations’ will probably spring from the margins – even from the shadows. SHARMA identifies which they are most likely to be, and why.
