The world is changing. We move from a two-block situation, dominated by North America on the one hand and developed Europe on the other, to one in which Developing Nations are becoming far more important. Led by the so-called BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia, India and China) the importance of this third block is clearly illustrated by looking at GDP's instead of stock market valuations. On a GDP-weighted basis the Third Block does already capture a weight of 30-35 percent. On a market-value basis it is only a mere 10-15 percent.
With Europe and America getting older, their economies will grow slower. The Third Block countries will gain in market share and new stock market issues will ensure that the lower market-value based weighting will disappear as well.
