Greece's decision to ask for help from its European Union partners and the International Monetary Fund has triggered a new wave of notes on where the country's debt crisis stands and what will happen next. For the most part, they have managed to avoid groan-inducing headlines referencing marathons, tragedies, Hellas having no fury or even Big Fat Greek Defaults. Perhaps this is because the latest reports are pointed. They focus on the need to solve the Greek debt crisis before it spreads to bring down others and even shake Europe's monetary framework loose.

Growth prospects for emerging markets are much higher than those for developed economies. Think of it this way: you are accelerating from 0 to 60mph in an emerging market vs accelerating from 45 to 60 mph in a developed economy. That said, there are major risks associated with potentially high returns. As stocks are volatile as compared to bonds, so too are emerging market stocks to the stocks in developed nations. The U.S. and Europe, for example, have established infrastructures, stable governments and ...
