The BRIC and MINT concept was introduced by former Goldman Sach economist Jim O'Neill. Mr. O'Neill recently said that BRIC and MINTs countries would shape the world's economy in the next decade, and they would be the best places for investments.
Although I don't disagree with Mr. O'Neill 's statement, one must be aware of the geopolitical risks in this group of countries and how it would affect their investments. Russia with the annexation of Crimea and Turkey and Nigeria have bee n a political mess for the past year.
I use the above chart to monitor the performance of that group against the SPY . As you can, the SPY clearly outperforms the groups,whether this is the result of or not.
