The BRICs comprise 20% of the world economy, but just 16% of global stock market cap, says Jim O'Neill. The last time the gap was this big - 2005 - the BRICs doubled the gain of developed markets over the following year. "Unless we are seeing a major collapse of those economies, it's a huge opportunity," he says.
