This article focuses on the share performances of stock exchanges in the Pacific Rim region. Nothing proclaims the success of a bustling economy better than a thriving stock market, and these days the Pacific Rim has more than its share. Powered by a cascade of cash from surging trade surpluses, many Asian markets have shot up 50% or more over the past two years. The stock market boom is in no danger, though shares are getting a tad expensive. But outside Japan, many small, parochial bourses are suddenly being catapulted into the major leagues before they're ready.
