Economists Seung Ho Park, Nan Zhou and Gerardo R. Ungson catalog the least-known, best-performing companies in Brazil, Russia, India and China – the BRIC nations. Sorting through more than 105,000 BRIC firms to select 70 “rough diamonds,” they examine how these potential future gems achieve strong business growth, predict why they could sustain that growth – and explain how they change the rules of the game. National business climates in the BRICs have hit unexpected turbulence since this 2013 study appeared, but getAbstract still recommends these corporate profiles as a good look at the firms that are distinguishing themselves in the BRICs.
