Goldman Sachs predicts that:

  1. China and Bharat (India) will be the dominant global manufactured products and services suppliers
  2. While Brazil and Russia would become dominant as raw materials suppliers

India and China are investing in higher education and going for the “intellectual capital,” while Russia and Brazil depend too on the commodity prices and are not making the necessary investments in infrastructure and human capital.

India has ten of the thirty fastest-growing urban areas in the World and, based on the actual trends, 700 million people will move to the Indian cities by 2050. This will have significant implications for the demand for urban infrastructure, real estate, and services. The economy of India will surpass the U.S. economy (in USD) by 2043.
