Pope Francis named Time's ‘Person of the Year 2013’
The time has come for Brazil, Russia, India and China to play a central role in a new global economy. That was the message of the debut summit of the so-called BRIC group, hosted in Yekaterinburg this week.

It is now appropriate than something serious be set-up to replace the failed US controlled imperialist system which has always functioned on blackmail, false dreams and submission. Since I started commenting on RT I have wished to see that association of decent countries to become a reality and initiate a new World-Order. Let us be positive and hope for the following generations a brighter future ! Sincerely... Jean-Claude Meslin
I think the BRIC idea is a brilliant idea. The USA and Europe inspired WTO should have some competition. For too long they have not had any competition. Regulations proposed and enforced by the WTO almost saw South Africa going down the drain like the rest of Africa, however this government was too clever for them and is economically in a much stronger position. I see Russia is also following this route of not joinig the WTO this is sooooooo clever. Be cautious of those people. The WTO rules and regulations are all designed to benefit Europe and USA. The rest of the world must suffer.
Biloxi - Yes I like the word TEAM, a new world team, rather than the 'its my ball, and unless I am captain, we don't play' approach of the west. The team relies on an equal partnership of strong individuals (nations) working together, with a common interest, maintaining the truly free market, but each looking after their own responsibilities in an autonomous fashion. Medvedev, et al. need to make sure this happens and prevent a block forming. We don't need a new block, we need a new team based approach, inclusive of anyone who wants to trade, without all the self interested empire restrictions and controls, that are present within the biased and unfair trading forums of today. A world fit for countries, not countries fit for the US. Only in this truly free environment, will we finally see a reduction in global fear among nations, the fear that ultimaletly manifests itself in conflict. The bottom line today, is that nations with resources, or non US profitable positions, live in imminent fear of US attack. That isn't a market, that's a mafia orgaised crime syndicate! BRIC needs to help fix this, by enabling a market for everyone as equal players, as simple as the old model of opening up a market stall. Not under pro US or anyone elses sanction. We all know what a free market is, so let's have one!
BRIC is just another, though interesting, regional alliance. All four nations have multicultural societies, emerging economies and some form of democracy. All four nations show promise of economic growth, unlike the decline of the United States and the European Union. And they are far more effective than the United Nations.
As to new members, call it BRIC-ISA. Sounds odd yet cute.
There is NO "I" in TEAM.
Therefore, the "I-MF" can be invited by those who are wise (BRIC) into the fold, and then countries such as Mexico can be held in the respect it deserves too, as a TEAM member of the planet earth not fully represented into the game of the western imperialists until the BRIC 'enlightened' continue to transform the old NOT "free" into the new REAL "free market."
Medvedev , et al. wear the hats of true forward thinkers and this is what the 21st Century needs!
