  1. 1. The New Information Economy: The Changing Landscape Victor Camlek Director, Market Intelligence Thomson Scientific 26 February 2008
  2. 2. Shifting Economic Power <ul><li>“ The world is moving from an era of geographically concentrated economic power to one characterized by multiple centers of economic and business activity.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ The contours of the global economy are changing. The collective economic dominance of the United States, Europe and Japan—the so-called triad economies—is giving way to a greater dispersal of global economic power as developing economies contribute an ever-increasing share of the world’s output, trade and investment.” </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Accenture, The Rise of the Multi-Polar World </li></ul></ul>Source: Accenture, The Rise of the Multi-Polar World , 2007

  4. 4. Definitions of Emerging Economies <ul><li>Emerging economies </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Countries that are starting to participate in the global market place by implementing reform programs and undergoing economic improvement </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The term “ emerging market ” was originally coined by the International Finance Committee (IFC) of the World Bank to describe a fairly narrow list of middle- to higher-income economies among the developing countries, with stock markets in which foreigners could buy securities </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The term’s meaning has since been expanded to include more or less all developing countries </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Developing countries are those with a Gross National Income (GNI) per capita of $9,265 or less. (The World Bank classifies economies as low-income (GNI $755 or less), middle-income (GNI $756–9,265) and high-income (GNI $9,266 or more). </li></ul></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Emerging Economies: One View of the Future <ul><li>Acronym created in 2001 by Jim O'Neill, head of global economic research at Goldman Sachs </li></ul><ul><li>GS explored the concept in depth in a series of Global Economics Papers including the 2003 groundbreaking analysis, Dreaming with BRICs: The Path to 2050 </li></ul><ul><li>Although it was less than 15% of the world economy, the BRIC nations have the potential of overtaking all the G6 countries with the exception of the US & Japan </li></ul>First Wave-BRIC Source : Goldman Sachs <ul><li>Brazil </li></ul><ul><li>Russia </li></ul><ul><li>India </li></ul><ul><li>China </li></ul>

Emerging Economies: The BRIC Nations Brazil Russia India China <ul><li>Economy forecast to grow by annual average of 4.1% from 2008-12 </li></ul><ul><li>Long-term forecast is much lower: 2.2% </li></ul><ul><li>GDP Growth expected to average more than 5% per year 2008-2012, boosted by high oil prices </li></ul><ul><li>Capacity constraints may slow the pace of institutional change </li></ul><ul><li>Real ruble appreciation may lead to decelerating pace of economic expansion </li></ul><ul><li>Real GDP growth forecasts anticipate decline from 11.4% in 2007 to 8.4% by 2012 </li></ul><ul><li>Inflation rose to 7.1%, highest level in 11 years; may climb to 8% </li></ul>Source : Economist, Country Briefings <ul><li>Real GDP growth forecast to slow from an estimated 7.8% in fiscal 2007/08 to an annual average of 7.5% each fiscal year through 2013 </li></ul>
  7. 7. BRIC: The Goldman Sachs 50-Year View <ul><li>Based on GDP growth , income per capita and currency movements </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ The results are startling. If things go right, in less than 40 years, the BRICs economies together could be larger than the G6* in US dollar terms. By 2025 they could account for over half the size of the G6. Of the current G6, only the US and Japan may be among the six largest economies in US dollar terms in 2050.” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ The list of the world’s ten largest economies may look quite different in 2050. The largest economies in the world (by GDP) may no longer be the richest (by income per capita).” </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Further implications </li></ul><ul><ul><li>In US dollar terms, China’s GDP could overtake the US by 2039 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>By 2039, India’s economy could be larger than all but the US and China </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ India has the potential to show the fastest growth over the next 50 years.” </li></ul></ul>Source : Goldman Sachs , Dreaming With BRICs: The Path to 2050 , D.

  28. 28. Publishers Respond to Growth in Asia Pacific Source: Simba, Global STM Publishing 2007-2008 , Scientific & Technical Publishing, 2007 “ The demand for scientific and technical materials in any particular market is linked directly to the level of research and development spending. The commitment to R&D is long established in the U.S. and Europe. Now R&D spending is on the rise in places like China and India, so publishers have increased their presence in those markets.” – Simba
