Emerging markets are economies that are emerging in developing countries. While they generally hold some characteristics of a developed market such as in the U.S., they do not fully meet the standards. Characteristics include fast growth, volatility, low per-capita income, currency swings, and a real capacity for growth. Surprisingly, they make up more than half of the global GDP and warrant a closer look.

Together, they examine emerging markets and their social, economic and political impacts.
