BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India. China and South Africa) are viewed currently as pillars of relative political, economic and financial stability, with the prospect of a major shift in future world power. The paper aims at investigating the relationships among the economic, financial and political country risk ratings of the BRICS and relating those risk factors to their respective national stock markets in the presence of representatives of the world's major stock markets and oil market. It also examines the interrelationships among the national country financial risk ratings factors to discern transmission of the risk spectrum among the countries of this group because of the relevance of this information to investors, traders and policy makers. The results demonstrate that only the Chinese stock market is sensitive to all the factors. Financial risk ratings generally demonstrate more sensitivity than economic and political risk ratings. and political risk is sensitive to both financial and economic risk ratings. Among the five BRICS. Brazil shows special sensitivity to economic and financial risks, while Russia and China hold strong sensitivity to political risk and India demonstrates special sensitivity to higher oil prices. Among the global factors, oil price is more sensitive to economic than financial risk, while the S&P 500 reverses this relationship. The two American quantitative casings (QEs) affect BRICS differently. (C) 2012 IMACS. Published by Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

China’s reform period which began in the late 1970s has been attractive both for the developing countries in the sense of taking the Chinese economic development as a model and the developed countries because of the new strategic position China has gained in the global power relations as a consequence of its economic growth, while the academic interest has also been rising. Focusing on the Chinese state as one of the most important actors of the reform process, without treating it as controlling and shaping...

In recent decades, the cities of the economically advanced nations have turned their faces to the sectors that input creative production and development for further economic growth and accumulation. The critical component of those sectors is the individuals that are involved in creative production. The creative sector workers are assumed to be highly creative, mobile, and pursue a quality standard of life (Florida, 2012/2002). The spatial merits of a place, therefore, determine their behavior of location pr...

Onbaşı, Nilay; Özdemir, Yonca; Saurin, Julian; Political Science and International Relations (2013-7)
Brazil is an interesting case to examine the relationship between economic growth and inequality. Obviously, it is one of the states to develop gradually over the last decades and be expected to be a rich state in the future. On the other hand, for centuries, it has had huge individual and regional inequalities. However, with economic growth in the last decades, inequality in Brazil has started to decline. For this topic, Simon Kuznets is one of the most famous economists. He basically argued that at the be...
