The Heat: BRICS meeting

The Heat

The acronym BRIC was coined in 2001 by a Goldman Sachs economist to list the countries would dominate economic growth by 2050 – Brazil, Russia, India and China.

A few years later, those countries formed a partnership that later included South Africa – the S on the term BRICS.

And now more letters could be added, as the group discussed multilateralism in a meeting hosted by China.

Dong Xue has details from Beijing.

To discuss:

  • Gilson Schwartz is a professor of economics at the University of Sao Paulo.
