The same could be said of India and Russia. But the fourth of the rapidly growing BRIC economies, Brazil has an important characteristic that the other BRICs lack. Brazil alone is a rapidly growing New World economy that is every bit as “American” as the United States.

He refers to a map first published by Waldseemüller in 1507 in which “America” is the name given to a country in the New World.

Secondly, it is extraordinary that Waldseemüller would have chosen to name a continent after the first name of a commoner.
