Heh, heh, interesting analogy. I definitely agree that for some reason, everything about China has suddenly become VERY UNCOOL.
I've been a China watcher for the last 5 yrs or so, and I don't remember sentiment on China being this investment negative, ever before.
I'm a little baffled as to why that should be. True, the macro Chinese economic expansion is slowing somewhat, but it seems to me that the investing universe is taking that way out of context. I mean, if we were talking about any economy on Earth EXCEPT China's, then who in their right mind would be all doom and gloom about economic expansion of ONLY 8%?
