Leaders of BRICS Nations Meet Amid Mixed Views on their Economies

As South Africa hosts the fifth BRICS summit of leaders from Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, the people of these emerging market nations have mixed attitudes about their economic conditions and prospects. Brazilians and Chinese are fairly upbeat. Indians and Russians, in particular, generally downbeat. The summit is being held Tuesday and Wednesday. The Pew Research Center conducted its surveys of attitudes in these countries in spring 2012.
