An apt definition to differentiate a developed country from a currently developing country relies totally on the economic status or stability of a country. Though other factors or criteria like lower unemployment rate, affluence of its citizens, high literacy rates are important to assign a country the status of a developed country; economy is the major aspect that comes into picture. This economy is strongly related to the infrastructure of a country where the developed country has advanced technological infrastructure backed up with strong financial stability and free flow of income or increase in the value of the country’s GDP (Gross Domestic Product). Thus a developed country is superior autonomous country satisfying the various other criteria apart from the economic aspects.
But there are certain countries with strong economic background but fail to satisfy the other criteria and such countries though developed are considered to be incompetent when compared to a developed country. Such countries are given a socioeconomic classification as the up-and-coming markets.
Such countries are the ones that are new to successful industrialization, the countries that will have or had developed markets in the past, etc. The opposite of such promising markets is termed as a ‘frontier market’ which experiences a monetary delay. Such countries would be on the verge of rapid industrial growth or industrialization. Brazil, Russia, India and China have a nominal or PPP-adjusted GDP which make them developing countries.
What are the promising hot spots for investing and why?
The developing countries are coercing of global development in today’s scenario. In fact such countries are believed and expected to grow over two to three times rapidly than the first world countries including the U.S. This implies that you can make money in future by investing in such rising markets. Thus main street investors can profit big time as such promising economies have a diversification where financial they function differently from that of the first world countries. Investing in stocks of the upcoming market is a sensible move.
It is also believed that more than 70% of global growth and development can be accredited to the upcoming markets which are hotspots for investing by main street investors. A shocking fact that can be considered here is that the total GDP of the promising markets will surpass the GDPs of the so called first world or developed countries.
Did you know that the promising markets saved the World Economy from crashing in the year 2008?
The credit crises and US housing crises that happened in 2008 did not lead to the failure of world market as the frontier countries supported the world markets which proved that such countries are strong and influencing elements contributing actively towards Global financial growth. Indeed, the balance of costs and expenses handled by the frontier countries is far better o than that of the economically superior countries.
Of late there is a gradual change in the capitalization of the world’s market where earlier the investors buying stocks from the developed countries are soon shifting to invest in the developing countries with a promising financial growth and stability. A basic principle that always holds well is that the developing countries earn more and spend more making long term investment in stocks on such countries worthwhile as there is consistency noticed for more than a decade which is unlikely to change rapidly making long term investments a safe transaction.
Advantages the rising markets offer to the investors
Most of the countries that have promising and emerging markets fall into countries with a high rate of economic growth globally. These countries are also known for their political stability that plays a vital role in terms of Government investments particularly research and education thus in turn crafting an atmosphere that is quite positive for businesses abroad. There is an increase in the number of affluent citizens in such companies due to job opportunities as many countries outsource them. This development generates revenues and profits to the international businesses and in turn helping out the investors who have invested in such promising businesses. It can thus, be declared that one can profit by either investing directly in such promising markets or indirectly by investing in International businesses.
