And don’t you get that Russia is not a emerging market even though it sacrificed 10% of its GDP on Crimea.

Argentina turned his economy to the right to be once again an emerging market and now is in recesion. So following the advises for being an emerging market can sometimes be catastrophic

Several people complaining about her pronunciation and yet they forget how multilingual this person could be! If she is indeed a Singaporean, she may be very well can speak Malay, Indian or at the very least Chinese. Let's stop being too critical about other people's tongue, especially if you only speak and understand English throughout your entire life.

Emerging market is a very lose term ! It's based on stock exchanges mostly which is a very poor indicator of economic power. It's should be based of industrial output and infrastructure !

Adinna Ikhwani (7 months ago)
@Stephanie Hale i don't said japan is cheap, currency is still a vital one 1998, malaysia is one of 10 asia countries that is stable from asia crisis, even though is less developed than korea, cheaper than korea, despite korea's currency is lower than malaysia, I'm not said that the lower currency, the cheaper of the cost living they have, but look at history and reality too, read "asia economy crisis" and see which one of asia's countries is more stable. FYI, japan, indonesia, china, south korea, and thailand is more fragile than malaysia, 1997/1998, ok?
Stephanie Hale (7 months ago)
@Adinna Ikhwani It may be true, but that doesn't mean it's relatable to the topic. When you write "1 ringgit: 268 won", you really don't know how currencies work. Because what you wrote had nothing to do with currency fluctuation at large. 1 USD equals about 113 Japanese Yen, but that doesn't mean Japan is cheap. It's one of the most expensive countries in the world, however, with the low inflation rate. Take some classes in economics, international relations, finance, and capital markets.

dont worry, no one will come to UK. And only small number of upper middle class and rich come to your country.
G Joeye (8 months ago)
first of all, there is difference between emerging markets and "third world". "third world" are classified under "UNDERDEVELOPED country" or "low income" COUNTRY like somalia, syria, african continents, pakistan ETC. While emerging markets come under "NEWLY INDUSTRIALIZED NATION" or "UPPER MIDDLE"/"LOWER MIDDLE" INCOME countries. to classify "NEWLY INDUSTRIALIZED NATIONS" like china, brazil, indonesia, russia, turkey, malaysia etc. with "THIRD WORLD" like somalia, syria, afghanistan etc. is NOTHING BUT EXTREME BIAS AND UTTER EMBARRASSMENT to top 20 economies of china, brazil, indonesia, malaysia, russia, india etc. SO MUCH FOR "JOURNALISM". please learn the difference between "NEWLY INDUSTRIALIZED NATION"/ EMERGING NATIONS and "third world"

Hackie Mercadal (6 months ago)
Islamabad is more organized than Delhi or other cities in India. I hope that happens. The only advantage of India from the rest is its population. Aside from that, with all the scams that they do to innocent people such as tourists, I'm not sure if that country will get a good Karma.

nah mate The Philippines became pretty rich during the Spanish colonization. And even more so during the American one. It was only after we started getting bad presidents like Marcos did the economy decline.

We did a case study at my university on Sony. On how they were once a power house globally when it came to electronics. Now they seem to be slacking behind. Can you guys please do a video on Sony back then to now. They really seem to be foll behind Apple and Samsung.
Huy Tran (8 months ago)
According to what I know, Sony nowadays focuses on another division instead of consumer electronics because they cannot compete with many Chinese, Korean manufacturers in terms of the price and innovation speed. The placement is device's component, especially camera sensor. Sony is a key player in this market where mostly every phone, camera manufacturer buys the Japanese company's product.
忍者Ninja (8 months ago)
If you want that kind of video then go watch ColdFusion. He has a lot of good topic about businesses.
J Nigel (8 months ago)
@noelj317 how they run their failing smartphone business is the same way they run all their failing subsidiaries. They are usually late to react to new trends and when they do they are already far too behind that the trend has already run its course and a new trend is already beginning. For example in the smartphone business it took them 2 years to release a new phone with a 2:1 aspect ratio screen. As for the TV business they are among the first to release an OLED but fell behind in almost any category. As a consumer there is absolutely no need for you to buy a Sony product. The Chinese and Korean competitors are simply more agressive both in marketing and innovation releasing new products with new features left right and center.
Debangsu Sarkar (8 months ago)
@noelj317 Exactly. PR management is a disaster too I guess. PS is selling because of the exclusives and the fanboys. I don't remember the last time I aspired for a Sony product, maybe a Bravia TV but that's it. Sony isn't cheap, like the Chinese brands, nor is aspirational like Apple, nor has a niche, like Red. I want them to succeed cause I love Japan.
noelj317 (8 months ago)
@Debangsu Sarkar it's was a marketing class. We had to find the issue Sony faces and how they can resolve them. I love Sony but, they really suck at marketing. At least internationally. Their biggest seller is the Playstation. Other than that, they have done nothing competitive to keep up with the times. Panasonic which is local competition has formed partnerships, had acquisition, and worked on their weaknesses. Pretty much Sony really neads to strongly evaluate their SWOT analysis. Also look into partnerships and acquisitions

How is the richest country on earth per capita ppp an emerging market?
Adinna Ikhwani (8 months ago)
@5aral no it's not, south korea has less population than indonesia
5aral (8 months ago)
Because of high population
Adinna Ikhwani (8 months ago)
First, THEIR CURRENCY, despite the higher capita like UAE and south korea, their currency is weaker, like example won korea, their currency is weaker than malaysia ringgit despite south korea gdp per capita is higher than malaysia Second, THEIR STOCK MARKET, despite high gdp, their stock market is depend on other country measure, like korea stock market, their indicator same like indonesia, malaysia, and singapore, they are using china, japan and hongkong indicator stock market for that Third, LIKE IN VIDEO, VOLATILITY, UAE maybe never had a taste of financial crisis (i don't know), but korea (south) has taste it, in 1997 asia crisis, thailand, indonesia, south korea are the worst country that their currency value is decreasing, and in global crisis 2008 also korea got the effect too, and those volatility, is also can make that country in danger

LOL where is china?? or china is still under developed country??
G Joeye (8 months ago)
@John King a country is called developed if its NOMINAL GDP per capita is above or about $12,056. Since china's NOMINAL gdp per capita is $10,000. They have almost achieved it. Within a decade, they will be a developed country.
John King (8 months ago)
In a few years, China will be a developed nation. They're currently averaging still at 13% growth which is 4 times more than a normal developed nation, it's still good growth and better than 37% growth they previously had which was a bit too much to keep it consistent.

Abhay Sharma (8 months ago)
It's quite interesting to see not only what the people of emerging economies would be able to give to themselves but rather how do they perform at the yardstick of sustainable growth that don't harm the environment at an extreme level, Or otherwise what would be the point of growing if taking it's people to the environmental catastrophe.
