Today I was filling my form F-1, something required of all candidates for office in WA
& is a very general form of assets. One of our holding is SLAFX (Scudder Latin America
originally). As I looked at it I noted it had risen over 20% this year. I am sure that if I
looked @ PRLAX I would find a similar trend. This is significantly more than other areas
of the world. Europe is struggling to reach 10%.
So why should we welcome folks with open arms when their own economy is apparently
not doing too bad?
