Back in the halcyon days of the dot-com 1990's I remember my neighbor, who worked a factory job, crowing about how is "emerging market/global growth" mutual fund in his 401k was performing. Up double digits that year alone. I asked him if he had made enough on that one to retire and of course he said no. I told him that that was too bad, because the money going into those funds was building brand new factories in China and Vietnam and he was probably helping to fund the destruction of his own job. He wasn't amused. And a couple years later the predictable happened.
