CLEARING UP THE CONFUSION
June 19, 2013
Hosted by Gavin Graham
Gavin and his guests clear up the confusion about several emerging and frontier markets and the growth estimates that we hear. He’ll have Richard Gula, President of Argyle Investment Consulting and Argyle Trading Systems for a detailed look at Argentina which lost its developed nation status and its future. With economics professor emeritus and United Nations Commission member Atif Kubursi he’ll look at Egypt and what it would take to run it around. Then he’ll get an update on the demographics of Vietnam and their importance for investors from financial advisor and researcher Peter Merrick. Heather West, Managing Editor, Latin America for Mergermarket makes a comparison between Colombia and Indonesia. And Gavin will also talk to John Derrick at U. S. Global Investors in San Antonio Texas about the huge range of growth estimates we keep hearing about these markets and ask him to make sense of them for us. This edition is produced by Al Emid.
