How do businesses evaluate world economies; what are developed and developing economies and how do they differ; and, how do professionals evaluate the expanding set of emerging-market countries, which started with the BRIC countries (i.e., Brazil, Russia, India, and China) and has now expanded to include twenty-eight countries?

Effective global managers need to be able to identify the markets that offer the best opportunities for their products and services. Savvy global managers realize that to be effective in a country, they need to know its recent political, economic, and social history. This helps them evaluate not only the current business opportunity, but also the risk of political, economic, and social changes that can impact their business.

bWise: Global Economies explores how we think about economic classifications for countries in a constantly evolving world -- as well as offer practical tips for global professionals to identify and monitor the expanding group of emerging markets for the best opportunities for their products and services.

Today, India boasts a sophisticated industrial and manufacturing base, a rapidly expanding service sector, a huge pool of skilled, low-to-moderate-cost workers including professional managers, and an established free-market system. India has capitalized on its large, well-educated, English-speaking workforce to become a major exporter of information technology services and software professionals.

Yet this is only one dimension of India’s intriguing one billion plus people. In contrast more than 200 million people still live on less than one dollar per day. It’s this kind of economic and social disparity that still marks the business cultural landscape, which is a reflection of the country’s extremes. To understand today’s Indian business environment, it’s essential to understand the local culture.
