“My mentor, a very successful international investor, recently challenged me to name the world’s greatest emerging market. Knowing of my on-the-ground experience and career-long interest in emerging markets, he paused with a smile as I considered the logical answers — China, India, Brazil and Russia. Or perhaps he had in mind a “frontier market” of Sub-Saharan Africa or South-East Asia. But his answer surprised me — the USA.”
