The graph shows the BRIC countries in the order their GDP per head in PPP terms relative to the EU average (left scale). An Indian has only 9% of the income of an average EU citizen compared to a 51% for a Russian. China has the fastest growth among this group. Growth rates for 2009 are projected to be much lower as the world is going into full recession.
