BRIC is an acronym first introduced by Jim O’Neill, a Goldman Sachs economist, in the early 2000s, to define the nations of Brazil, Russia, India and China and their economic potential. Also called the "Big Four", or "the BRIC economies", the four nations are forecasted to encompass a lot of growth opportunities for the worldwide economy, and become wealthier than most of the current major economic powers by 2050. Moreover, according to a 2003 Goldman Sachs report, China will be the dominant supplier of manufactured goods, India will be the dominant suppliers of services, while Brazil and Russia will supply raw materials.
