Forget Emerging Markets, Developing Countries, Chindia, and all that stuff you heard about India and China.
The new definition of these two countries is Resplendent, Re-emergent Civilizations - RRC, as Gergory T. Shea calls, vice president, government affairs, Asia Pacific, for Research in Motion, calls it.
Shea, whose company makes the can’t-live-without-it Blackberry, reminds me that in the middle ages, technology from India and China flowed into Europe and resulted in the Continent moving rapidly from the medieval era into the industrialized era, from whence it emerged dominant globally.
The information technology industry is doing just that for both India and China in this era. It’s speeding up the process of the re-emergence of these two ancient civilizations, making them resplendent once more.
India and China: RRC nations. Has a nice ring to it, no?
