A new PriceWaterhouseCoopers study, Economic Views-Global, projects that the G7 economies will contribute less to world GDP growth in the next two years than the BRIC economies.

This compares to the G7, where a sluggish recovery means they are likely to account for just 34% of global growth over 2011 and 2012.
