As BRIC grow like Pigs, the PIGS fall like a pack of Bricks!

The new pseudonyms in the world of business.  Some are growing and some on the cusp of breakout, and other clearly deeply troubled and literally falling like a pack of bricks.  How will they contribute to the world economics in the coming years.

BRIC – Brazil, Russia, India and China.

CIVETs – Colombia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Turkey and South Africa

PIGS – Portugal, Ireland, Greece and Spain

Civets are also involved in the making of some perfumes. How involved? Hmm, let’s just say, not as investors.
