Are all in this mornings financial markets news headlines.
Certainly these issues are front and center for their implications on developments for the global economy.
The key question (and there appear to be many opinions on the answer):
Is China in control? Are they being proactive or reactive?
This all remains to be seen, in time.
Emerging economies are getting caught in the fall-out (Chinese Yuan devaluation and equity market sell-off) there is currency, bond and equity market volatility and investors are moving away from that risk as a result.
Ever wondered what the (MSCI) Emerging Markets (Equiy) Index is comprised of?
When the indexes are sold as a whole, many very solid companies may be taken lower in price as a result, but in time as value is recognized they will "bounce" back in price as investors uncover the value that was created. This unfortunately, may take time to happen.
So it is important to remember that the purpose of owning this index (or any index for that matter) is for long-term growth and from time to time there may be short-term downward pressure on prices, but that eventually, as the good companies remain solid, they will bring the index back to realistic growth levels.
