Whoda Thunk It

Out of the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China) countries, China's been the worst performer over the past ten years. The top performer? India. I never would have guessed that, but that's how it's been. See this article for more on the topic (definitely worth reading):

Shadowed By the China Craze, India Outperforms

China's actually been an underperformer of the majority of emerging markets, but it's gained a lot of press over the past couple years after its economy has started heating up. Obviously past results don't signify what the future will bring, but this is an interesting fact that seems to have been completely ignored.

Very interesting article.

Some research to do is to look at the average income level of the countries over the past 10 years.

What they is that once the average income hits $2000 per year, growth really takes off, and that is where China is now. It could just be that China's income levels have been behind India, but that is simply speculation on my part.
