Utan att på något sätt säga att Ryssland är ointressant för börsplacerare så tror jag det är viktigt att sortera noga bland östeuropa fond utbudet. Länder som Ungern och Rumänien handlar om tysk (och svensk) exportindustri såsom tyska Mercedes och svenska Autoliv som lägger sina produktionsenheter i grannländer med allt bättre vägnätsförbindelse till Tyskland och dramatiskt lägre produktionskostnader och ska man vara lite politiskt o-korrekt så kan man fråga vad som skulle göra att till stor del turkisketniska bilarbetare i Tyskland skulle vara så mycket värdefullare än ungerska tillverkare av Mercedes under exakt samma ledarskap några mil bort. Speciellt då skatter på företagen och för den delen arbetarna är så mycket lägre i länder som Ungern, Slovakien och Rumänien.
