Breakout Nations by Ruchir Sharma [REVIEW]

I enjoyed this book immensely. There are some small economic philosophy issues, but it mixes perfectly my interests in finance, political science, history and economics. Most of the book is Sharma covering specific countries or at most regions. This leads to some of the chapters feeling like general overviews rather than detailed analysis, when the details of the Chinese economy, Brazilian economy ect could warrant there own books.

Even though it stays in overview mode I know that that’s all most people need and therefore it’s a great start to begin understanding some of the general thoughts involved in specific emerging markets. I recommend this book for that reason: read it to give yourself a base on the financial world of emerging markets and then start your own research in earnest.
