Russia

  • William B. Gamble

Abstract

It is hardly surprising that Jim ONeill chose to include Russia as part of the BRICs. Russia has enormous potential, partially due to its size. The Russian land mass makes it the largest country in the world, and it ranks 10th in population. Its economy is large as well. In terms of nominal GDP, it is 11th behind India, China, Brazil, and the G7 countries.1 In terms of purchasing power parity, it ranks ahead of the UK, France, Italy, and Brazil.
