Picturing the BRICS Development Bank

A picture is worth a thousand words they say. The photo below is culled from a New York Times article on the recent BRICS Summit in March, and discussions about establishing a BRICS Development Bank, to challenge the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. The article basically highlights how difficult it would be for the BRICS to create this bank given their political, social and economic differences, and this photo says it all.

One interesting paragraph in particular says:

“The developing countries in the bloc hardly invest in one another, preferring their neighbors and the developed world’s major economies…”

Very interesting…

  1. Each month when the Handmaid is in the proper physical state,
    she is taken to the husband and forced to silently copulate
    with him with the wife, at least in Offred’s case, watches. This book is a real blast from the past– but an important one. It presents the common display as seen in other e-book readers such as Kindle and Nook, which also support the latest E-Ink Technology but come in higher price tags.
