After the BRICS and MINT, which emerging-market economies will be tagged as leaders with a jazzy acronym? A sugar mill and ethanol manufacturing plant in Brazil, a high growth hot spot. Sixteen years ago, Goldman Sachs chief economist Jim O’Neill coined the acronym “BRIC” to designate the most promising of the world’s developing countries—Brazil, Russia, India and China. These mammoth, rapidly growing economies would be the next to join the ranks of developed nations, the prediction held.
Vienna has positioned Austria well to benefit from CEE growth that seems ready to take off after years of stagnation. It has been more than 25 years since legendary investor Jim Rogers, co-founder of the Quantum Fund alongside George Soros, rode his BMW motorcycle through Austria on the first stage of a round-the-world trip. The Berlin Wall had only recently fallen.
Fierce competition among Switzerland banks for the world's wealthiest clients leads to leadership shake-ups. Swiss banks are tweaking their top ranks as they adapt to a changing competitive landscape. The global crackdown on tax evasion and lack of transparency has diminished the attractiveness of Switzerland’s notoriously ‘discreet’ private banks for much of their traditional clientele. It has also opened up the market to competition from US- and Asia-based private banks.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
