Jim O'Neill: Stop Freaking Out, If Europe Mattered I Would Have Included It In The BRICs

Jim O’Neill spoke to Bloomberg in London this morning (New York time), highlighting how euro-bearishness is well overblown.

He also highlights that in the end, Europe doesn’t really matter than much when compared to the U.S., China, India, and other nations which are driving global growth.
