While doing research on the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China) I found an interesting article called Writing on the bric wall by Jane Simms. It mentioned that the there were fast growing markets in Latin America and unless the UK change the "sluggish" response then they may risk falling down the world economic rankings and be underneath economies such as Brazil and India.
