The role of brane-bulk energy exchange and of an induced gravity term on a single braneworld of negative tension and vanishing effective cosmological constant is studied. It is shown that for the physically interesting cases of dust and radiation a unique global attractor which can realize our present universe (accelerating and 0<Omega_m0<1) exists for a wide range of the parameters of the model. For Omega_m0=0.3, independently of the other parameters, the model predicts that the equation of
