The following book will examine the history of capital flows among the developed nations and the emerging markets from the 1990s to 2012. In terms of emerging markets, the analysis will focus on the BRICS: Brazil, Russia, India, China and now South Africa. Within this spectrum, it will use any number of analytical tools to measure capital flows and capital formation within the context of globalized markets. An analysis of capital flows relative to the emerging markets’ GDP growth rates over time should help determine an expectation of future growth rates. The results found in the history will provide me with the basic framework from which to build a thesis to determine the impact of increased financial regulations on the future growth of the BRICS countries.
