Another Globe & Mail Boo-Boo

20160424_140536A couple of months ago I did a post on a moderately glaring error I found in a Saturday issue of the Globe & Mail related to a music column by Giller Award-winning author Sean Michaels.

While catching up on last Saturday’s G&M I found an even bigger boo-boo in the Report on Business section in a feature on the declining economic fortunes of the so-called BRICS countries: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. Actually, there’s two huge errors on display in the above photograph. Anyone care to point them out?

  1. India and China’s populations are in the billions not trillions. Not sure if that counts as one or two errors? :)

  2. First time I’ve seen S’Africa included in this group, (it’s called BRIC not BRICS). Oh, look, their GDP is 25% of Russia’s…. Why are they included?
