The future of BRIC & MIST economies | Ms. Postlethwaite's Human Geography Page |

The BRIC economies outperformed the MIST economies marginally over the least four years, but the gap has narrowed substantially compared to the preceding four years. That outperformance will not be maintained as the coming four years will see the MIST economies take the lead. The MIST economies are wealthier, on average, than their BRIC counterparts, with per capita GDP some 51% higher – mainly thanks to South Korea, the global superstar performer over the last three decades.
