Abstract

Something out of ordinary is afoot in emergent economies. In Brazil, a small but significant group of emerging companies is going global for the first time in modern history. Some of them are becoming giants in their industries, acquiring firms and tapping into the fertile markets in developed economies like the United States and Europe.Although fewer people have heard of Gerdau Group, Sabó, Weg, Vale, and Embraer, those companies embody a powerful phenomenon that is dramatically affecting international economics. Those firms are Latin American-based powerhouses that are aggressively expanding into the United States and other industrialized nations. The main hypothesis of this project is that these companies are becoming global players with deep impacts on their home countries and in the global economy. Comparing the Brazilian, Chinese and Indian companies movement, this project intends to analyze some references to orient public policies to foster Braziian companies internationalization. (AU)
