Give the BRICS more power: we need them on our side

Beyond economics, there is plenty more to ponder, including the growing number of disturbances around the world, with the escalating crisis in Ukraine and the rise of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant in the Middle East the most concerning. ... Closer to home, it is just a fortnight until the Scottish referendum on independence, and the most recent opinion polls suggest a much closer race than was expected even just a week or so ago. Are policymakers prepared for the consequences of the Scottish people voting to leave the UK? And, of course, what would such a monumental decision mean for more devolution in other parts of the UK, and our relationship with Europe?


The launch of the BRICS Development Bank suggests that these countries have no intention of disappearing into economic and policy oblivion.
