    Where Can Nationalism Take Financial Planning?

    Search engines are ready and waiting if you have never heard of Mahatma Gandhi. He may appear frail and even comic in this century, but Nelson Mandela and Dr. Martin Luther King count amongst his followers. He fought foreign control over his land and people, through the financial planning weapon of self-reliance. That is pretty much the reverse of globalization. Gandhi asked his fellow country-people to give up clothes made in Great Britain, and to use their own farm inputs instead.

  • The Declaration of Independence could not have matched the applause that a 2008 State of the Union address or a campaign speech evokes!

  • International stock investment is the Mantra of financial planning today. Private equity and large banks have made more money in emerging markets than in their home bases during the recent past. It is time for retail stock investors to follow, though this is a major challenge for the traditional stock market circuit.

Therefore, the global appreciation of the Euro has important long term implications for Brazil’s stock exchange development. The benefits are mutual since the European Union can take heart from the fact that Brazil is now the 11th largest economy in the world, the third biggest west of Greenwich, besides the leader of all South America. The country’s real is also an appropriate and reliable currency for stock investment from other parts of the world.
