Listen: Are the BRICs still building or crumbling?

In this episode, Metals Meltdown goes beyond Charles Dickens' classic, A Tale of Two Cities, and discusses a tale of two continents instead -- focusing on Asia and South America, and in particular the BRIC countries, which many economists once hailed with great expectations.

How are these recently emerged economic giants getting along? What is the state of their steel industries? And what does this all mean for the global steel context? Our steel and iron trio Peter Brennan, Chris Davis and Sebastian Lewis -- fresh from conferences in China and Argentina -- think the picture is not so bleak after all.
