Hosted by Té Revesz
Emerging markets? Frontier market? BRICS? MINT? MIST? CIVETS? PIIGS? As the players in the global marketplace continue to reinvent themselves and growth and innovation migrate to the economies of the East and South, how do we best allocate our resources? How do we identify the markets best match our objectives and capabilities? Help is here. The University of Pretoria's Gordon Institute of Business Science has launched the Dynamic Market Index. The DMI helps identify the catalysts for change: conditions and institutions that help economic growth, wealth creation, innovation and socioeconomic development. The index measured the performance of 133 countries between 2006 and 2012. Joining Global Reach to discuss this is Dr. Lyal White Director for the Centre for Dynamic Markets at the Gordon Institute of Business Science who will tell us how we can use powerful new tool to help our own companies win in world markets.
