New kids on the block: the rise of the BRIC and the reconfiguration of global economic ties


Müller, Martin (2011). New kids on the block: the rise of the BRIC and the reconfiguration of global economic ties. European Researcher, 12(15):1615-1625.

Abstract

This contribution examines the rise of the BRICs (Brazil-Russia-India-China) through the lens of central socio-economic indicators, including the World Bank Worldwide Governance Indicators and the World Values Survey. It charts the shift in economic weight and emerging reconfiguration of economic ties as evidenced in foreign direct investment (FDI) and the emergence of transnational corporations (TNCs) and considers the resulting challenges for intercultural contact at different scale levels through two brief case studies.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
