Abstract: This is a collection of research papers on the BRICs phenomenon and its impact on the global economy. The Goldman Sachs Global Economics Department released book titled "BRICs and Beyond" in 2007. This book compiles their research on the BRICs - Brazil, Russia, India and China - and the changing nature of the global economy. It is now six years since they coined the term 'BRIC' in their Global Economics Paper, 'Building Better Global Economic BRICs', published on November 30, 2001. Since then, these countries' equity markets have seen a remarkable increase in their value: Brazil has risen by 369%, India by 499%, Russia by 630%, and China by 201%, using the A-share market, or by a stunning 817% based on the HSCEI.
