Jim O’Neill

Jim O’Neill (managing director and head of global economic research, Goldman Sachs International, London) delivers a keynote address at the 2009 Canadian International Council Regional Conference, Vancouver, B.C., May 28, 2009.

Mr. O’Neill’s presentation follows up on his landmark thesis, entitled “Dreaming with BRICs: the Path to 2050,” in which he recognised that Brazil, Russia, China, and India have changed their political systems to embrace global capitalism and argued that the economic potential of these countries may enable them to become the four dominant economies by the year 2050.
