Chapter

Abstract

The national intellectual capital rankings of the four BRIC countries are all in the fourth quarter percentile (31–40th) of National Intellectual Capital Indices for 40 countries (NICI40). Brazil, China, India, and Russia ranked number 37, 36, 40, and 32, respectively. In comparing each individual country’s overall ranking, Brazil is better in market capital (ranked #33); China scores higher in market capital (ranked #25) and renewal capital (ranked #27); and Russia is relatively strong in renewal capital (ranked #22). Yet China is relatively weak in human capital (ranked #39), India is also weak in human capital (ranked #40), and Russia is weak in both market capital (ranked #38) and process capital (ranked #39).
