many stock markets in the world? We have heard numerous estimates, but
no definitive answers. Interestingly, some markets do better than the tried
& true. Brazil came out of nowhere and stunned
the world with a run up that showed no signs of leveling off. When
we started this website, China wasn't even a contender. Does that
mean that one should go looking for the next opportunity? Sort of.
Jimmy Rogers, the Investment Biker, went around the world with his girlfriend
on motorcycles; whenever and wherever he could he looked at the local stock
markets, and he invested. Jimmy Rogers knows where to look, he know what
to look for. He's extremely rich. Does Jimmy Rogers have the answer
to overseas stock markets, and how to play them? Perhaps, he is rich, and
he made his money far from the maddening crowd. Take a look at these
stock markets, you may just find some treasure. Also if you want to see
what Jim Rogers has to say about investing, it would be worthwhile to look
at that also. See Hot Commodities: How Anyone Can Invest Profitably in

others lost fortunes in the down turn, he made one.
Markets / Stock Exchanges A - E (Africa through Europe)
- Some exchanges are physical locations where transactions are carried
out on a trading floor, by a method known as open outcry. This type of
auction is used in stock exchanges and commodity exchanges where traders
may enter "verbal" bids and offers simultaneously. The other type of stock
exchange is a virtual kind, composed of a network of computers where trades
are made electronically via traders. The purpose of a stock exchange is
to facilitate the exchange of securities between buyers and sellers, thus
providing a marketplace (virtual or real). The exchanges provide real-time
trading information on the listed securities, facilitating price discovery.
Markets / Stock Exchanges F - N (Finland through Norway)
- Market participants include individual retail investors, institutional
investors such as mutual funds, banks, insurance companies and hedge funds,
and also publicly traded corporations trading in their own shares. Some
studies have suggested that institutional investors and corporations trading
in their own shares generally receive higher risk-adjusted returns than
retail investors. A few decades ago, worldwide, buyers and sellers were
individual investors, such as wealthy businessmen, usually with long family
histories to particular corporations. Over time, markets have become more
"institutionalized"; buyers and sellers are largely institutions (e.g.,
pension funds, insurance companies, mutual funds, index funds, exchange-traded
funds, hedge funds, investor groups, banks and various other financial
Markets / Stock Exchanges O - U (Oman through Ukraine)
- In 12th century France the courratiers de change were concerned with
managing and regulating the debts of agricultural communities on behalf
of the banks. Because these men also traded with debts, they could be called
the first brokers. A common misbelief is that in late 13th century Bruges
commodity traders gathered inside the house of a man called Van der Beurze,
and in 1309 they became the "Brugse Beurse", institutionalizing what had
been, until then, an informal meeting, but actually, the family Van der
Beurze had a building in Antwerp where those gatherings occurred; the Van
der Beurze had Antwerp, as most of the merchants of that period, as their
primary place for trading. The idea quickly spread around Flanders and
neighboring counties and "Beurzen" soon opened in Ghent and Amsterdam.

Money Offshore By Jay Butler Asset Protection Services Ltd

to understand the difference between taxable income and reportable assets.

to Maintain Asset Privacy Within the US By Bobby Casey, Global Wealth Protection
- With asset protection planning, anonymity seems to be the number one
concern for people these days. And rightly so. Any 11 year
old with a laptop can easily do an online record search and find your bank
accounts and their balances, your vehicle registrations, your real estate
assets, your credit report, your residence history and even your driving
record. Many clients are interested in anonymity and asset protection.
In some cases clients confuse the two. They think that anonymity
is asset protection. It is not, but anonymity does have benefits.
When forming an FLP (family limited partnership) or an LLC (limited liability
company), the strength of the entity is dependent upon the state of formation,
the quality of the operating agreement and the business purpose of the

Managerís Report from China - I am writing
this from the back of a taxi in Hong Kongís Central district. My meetings
with assorted bankers, hedge fund managers, Taipans, and the press stretched
on longer than expected, with the result that I am now stuck in rush hour
traffic on the way to the airport. So I might as well use the time productively
and sum up my thoughts on my recent trip to China. When I first cajoled
my way into to the Middle Kingdom in the early seventies, it was in the
back of a broken down truck carrying bags of wheat, no doubt destined to
a thriving black market. We drove down a heavily potholed single lane road
that had not seen serious maintenance since the thirties. -

Of Offshore Banks - An offshore bank is defined
by its location, or 'jurisdiction'. An offshore bank is usually located
outside of the depositors country of residence, typically within a jurisdiction
that levies very low taxes, or no taxes at all. Each jurisdiction
varies in its degree of taxation, its degree of privacy, and its services.
Offshore banks located in politically and economically stable jurisdictions
provide a safe-haven for assets that may be at risk in the nation in which
the investor lives and holds residency.

of Belize is founded on English Common Law supplemented by local legislation.

Taxes - Offshore Tax Information - Foreign Earned Income
- Individuals have been leaving their own land to seek opportunities elsewhere
since the dawn of mankind. But it has only been since the development of
the modern nation-state, and its taxation of the worldwide income of its
citizen-residents, that expatriation has taken on significant tax consequences.
One of the first tax advisors to appreciate the potential tax savings of
expatriation was my friend and colleague, Marshall Langer J.D., a valued
member of The Sovereign Society Council of Experts. Langer is an international
tax attorney and the respected author of several major international tax
treatises. He is also the daring creator of a now out-of-print book, The
Tax Exile Report
