Indonesia's population is the fourth largest in the world after China, India, and the United States. With its large population, Indonesia will be ranked seventh in Gross Domestic Product by 2050 based on a prediction by Jim O'Neill about BRIC and other prominent countries. Indonesia has a mixed economy in which both the private sector and government play significant roles. The country is the largest economy in Southeast Asia and a member of the G-20 major economies. Indonesia's estimated gross domestic product (nominal), as of 2012 was US$928.274 billion with estimated nominal per capita GDP was US$3,797, and per capita GDP PPP was US$4,943 (international dollars). June 2011: At World Economic Forum on East Asia, Indonesian president said Indonesia will be in the top ten countries with the strongest economy within the next decade. The gross domestic product (GDP) is about $1 trillion and the debt ratio to the GDP is 26%Mexico will be set on the fifth, South Korea (12th) and Turkey (13th). MIKT represents the order.
South Korea is by far the most highly developed country when compared to the BRICS and Next 11, yet it has been achieving growth rates of 4-6%, a figure more than double that of other advanced economies. More importantly, it has a significantly higher Growth Environment Score (Goldman Sachs' way of measuring the long-term sustainability of growth) than all of the BRICS or N-11s. Commentators such as William Pesek Jr. from Bloomberg argue that Korea is "Another 'BRIC' in Global Wall", suggesting that it stands out from the Next Eleven economies. By GDP (PPP), South Korea already overtook a G7 and G8 economy, Canada, in 2009. It then surpassed Spain in 2010 and at current speed, will equal Italy before 2016 to become the world's 11th largest economy and 6th largest among developed countries. Economists from other investment firms argue that South Korea will have a GDP per capita of over $96,000 by 2050, surpassing the United States and by far the wealthiest among the G7, BRICS and N-11 economies, suggesting that wealth is more important than size for bond investors, stating that South Korea's credit rating will be rated AAA sooner than 2050.
In September 2009, Goldman Sachs published its 188th Global Economics Paper named "A United Korea?" which highlighted in detail the potential economic power of a United Korea, which would surpass Japan, the United Kingdom, Germany and France within 30–40 years of Korean reunification. It is estimated that its GDP would surpass $6 trillion by 2050. The young, skilled labor and large amount of natural resources from the North combined with advanced technology, infrastructure and large amount of capital in the South, as well as Korea's strategic location connecting three economic powers, is likely going to create an economy among the largest of the G7.
In 2011 Turkey had the world's 15th largest GDP-PPP and 18th largest Nominal GDP. The country is a founding member of the OECD (1961) and the G-20 major economies (1999).
