The article addresses the progress of globalization in 2009. According to David Rubenstein, co-founder of The Carlyle Group, globalization has lost credibility and is considered a curse word as a result of the unprecedented economic problems in the U.S. The Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRIC) countries are predicted to experience the most growth in the future. Based on a survey by the Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce, three-quarters of investors in private equity in emerging markets plan to invest in BRIC regions.
