Interesting article....
Too bad he only focused on the 'big picture' (how well the countries are doing) and did't really get into any specific companies, except for the two casinos.

But then I read that individual companies will be discussed in "further reports." I hope I remember to track those down.

I'm already solidly invested in Chile, but the others have always had problems, from my perspective. With Turkey, I keep reading about how their 'secular Islamic' society is losing the culture wars and a serious crackdown is inevitable.

Anyone not scared off by Thailand's recent headlines has a higher risk tolerance than I do. How can the local markets be stable when they came sooo close to a civil war ealier in the spring?

Singapore - I just haven't found the right company / stock; I want to be invested there.

And Indonesia has such a large population striving toward middle class aspirations that there have to be some great opportunities among consumer product companies. There has to be something other than telecom stocks that will take advantage of the rising local wages.
