    The BRICS are an exogenous invention that is institutionalized under the convenience of a geopolitical market strategy, which are, to a greater or a lesser degree, favored each of the five countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) that make up the BRICS today. As such, today it is a political group, lacking deep roots, whose future will be conditioned by the dividends that it can yield in the coming years as a result of its political, economic, and social correlations and divergences. This paper argues that the rise of China and the BRICS countries occurs just in the last decades of the 20th century and in the first years of the 21st century, and its result cannot be separated from the lines of transformation and crisis that have characterized this time period. Equally, given the parallelism that is drawn with the economic phenomena presented at the beginning of the past century, its review in the framework of these antecedents is obligatory.
