China's Billion-Dollar Aid Appetite - By Jack C. Chow | Foreign Policy
Back in 2001, I was the lead U.S. negotiator in international talks meant to transform the way that poor countries fight some of the world's most pernicious diseases -- HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. Our vision looked like this: Instead of each country spending on its own, rich countries would pool donations into one coordinated fund that would give grants to help resource-strapped countries purchase medicines, build health programs, and prevent the diseases from spreading.

There is however a historical relationship that investors should be aware of. When the U.S. market goes down sharply, the correlation with foreign markets goes up. In other words, the benefit of diversification is reduced ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
