But will it always be true when your government is doing its best to bugger up the economy?

Agreed. Just look at the amount of listed companies now compared with 15 years ago. It's a lot less. Still, if you hold quality shares that makes more money outside the borders of this country then inside and you have a 75 year view you're safe. ;-)

Sure but over 60% of the TOPI value is foreign. Apparently over 60% of revenue earned on our market is too. If this chart were to be USD adjusted, it would look a lot flatter. That said, however, if you had invested in companies that were "emmigrating" - you would have outperformed this chart.
