A comprehensive explanation of emerging markets

In this global economy, it is important to understand the power that other countries possess, and how they can affect the global market and your investment portfolio.

Emerging Markets For Dummies provides you with the information you need to understand Asian, Russian, Indian, Brazilian, and other foreign markets and their place in our local and global economies. You'll get guidance on how to branch out into emerging markets to diversify your portfolio and how to incorporate these growth areas into your business and investment plans.
