Emerging Markets at Record 24% of World Equity, China Snapping up Commodities

Emerging Markets Take Record Share of World Equity:

Developing countries’ share of worldwide equity value climbed to a record as the fastest- growing economies lured investors amid the first global recession since World War II.

The 22 nations classified as “emerging” by index provider MSCI Inc. comprised 24 percent of world market capitalization, up from 18 percent at the start of this year, the highest proportion since Bloomberg began compiling the data in 2003. China shares surpassed $3 trillion yesterday for the first time since August, from $1.8 trillion at the end of 2008.

So while they pour money into emerging economies the established nations are contracting.

As pointed out previously we have a wealth transfer going on.
