It also raises the ante on learning about and understanding these companion cultures and economies above and beyond simplified stereotypes.

How to keep a handle on these five? Read and track online articles and analyses. In print, for example: Book Review: The Growth Map: Economic Opportunity in the BRICs and Beyond.  And online, for example: BRICS.
