considering the currency de valuations going on in the western world to attempt to make their exports better value to buying nations, I believe that investors should follow the money.

For an extended period going forward it will be the asian/ south american companies and states that will produce the real growth, coupled with selected frontier markets.

I think it is folly not to invest in these growth economies that are not beset with all the problems of the west. Demographics have also a big bearing going forward, for example, the high volume of pensioners in the western economies.

They have to be subsidized, and subsequently there will be a huge economic drain going forward.

Asian countries such as Vietnam have many more people of working age, so pensioners subsidies in terms of health care etc are of much lower costs. Employment costs are much lower which encourages foreign investment.

In all, returns for a very long time make these markets the place to be.

Selected counties of these types are where your investments are likely to perform best for the foreseeable future. Tie that with the strengthening of their currencies compared to the western world makes a compelling case for investing your money. With due diligence of course.

The initial warning signs are all there for Santander. Fast expansion in UK and elsewhere against seriously declining asset values in Spain and South America. When these assets are eventually revealed at their true worth, somrthing could hit the fan. Yes UK depositors are protected in the usual way but the Bank Balance sheet could look very sick if (and when?) bad news led to a UK based run to withdraw deposits with the inevitable result in Santander finding it rather difficult to borrow on the Inter-Bank market.

I would welcome any comments about overheating in Brazil. Last I heard they had fairly high interest rates and some disincentives to capital inflow.
