Where to Invest

in 2009:

 

In a report from the World Bank found here...

 

Exerpt:  "With stock markets and real estate prices falling down in both OECD countries and large emerging markets, it is time to look for more lucrative investments.   If you have a high-risk/high-return taste, look no further: Cuba and Zimbabwe fit the bill. Prices in both markets are low, thanks to the poor economic institutions in both countries. Yet both countries boast decent infrastructure, well-educated population (by regional standards), and, in the case of Zimbabwe, functioning judiciary. Both leaders are old: Robert Mugabe is 84; Raul Castro is 77. New leaders may be more interested in welcoming foreign investment.  The two countries came up on top of the list in a recent survey. If you have less taste for high risk, other selections include Azerbaijan, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ghana, Mozambique, and Vietnam. These economies already have taken significant steps to improve their investor attractiveness. Prices are rising, but many opportunities remain.
