Accustomed as we are to acronyms, (BRICS, NAFTA, EU)
this one was a surprise: GUTS. Who or what?
According to the authors, the GUTS are four large countries that are
increasing their international influence.
The countries: Germany, United
States, Turkey and South Korea. Each one
important in their region has seen its links around the world expand and
deepen. (As we often read that the US influence in the world is declining the authors present an opposing perspective.)
We tend to think of these countries as
singular entities with some ties to each other. The authors propose that by acting as a group will have
significant power and importance. Will we start to hear
about the GUTS as often as we do the BRICS?
