In the post subprime meltdown where are/shall individual investors be putting their savings? Gone are the days of 7% tripple AAA bonds and then going on with life. While the bankers claimed it was so, it was too good to be true. Now its back to good security selection for growth and dividends. Problem is you got to do the work of finding them. Just investing in index funds is a lame answer...regardless what MR. Buffet says.
Asia has many growth companies. China's are most expensive, Thailand's least. I know about some about this subject, lets see if we can get a discussion going here.
