The author reflects on the market performance of Asian countries. He looks up the political violence in Bangkok, Thailand which affects the tourism industry, as well as the sagged global commodity prices and speculative mainland stocks due to the sudden collapse of the European bond market. However, the author points out that despite the uncertain economic condition in Asia, it is still the best global neighborhood to be in.
