The Seven Economic Powerhouses of the Future

By November 27, 2012

Follow me on:

Istanbul, TurkeyI think a lot about BRIC/BRICS/BRIMC but now BRIC is out and PTIPTSN is in! In an article titled The New Breakout Nations, Foreign Policy suggests that BRIC's economic growth is slowing rapidly.  However, the article reports that seven new up-and-coming countries are going to be the economic powerhouses of the coming years. What are the seven countries of PTIPTSN? Philippines, Turkey, Indonesia, Thailand, Poland, Sri Lanka, and Nigeria. I'm glad to see this list and especially the inclusion of Nigeria, which is projected to be the world's third most populous country by 2100. (Remember when the Economic Tigers were the next big thing?)
