You would be in good company. Here's a story about Jim Rogers (his books are on the Global Gains must read list) leaving new york for asia.

http://finance.yahoo.com/tech-ticker/article/yftt_1708/Great-Investor-Leaves-America?tickers=

I been gaining more and more exposure overseas for a few years now, but I still think each investment should be looked at from a microeconomics perspective. If you have the entire world's worth of companies to invest in, some of the best values are still probably going to be US based.

I try to go wherever I perceive the value is, regardless of the country. If you subscribe to the contrarian line of thinking, the US market has a lot of pessimism built in to it. That said, I'm still allocating a greater percentage of new money to overseas investments than US ones.

How's that for a non-answer? :)
