I hope my children own my Chinese shares. If I had sold American shares in 1915 I might have looked smart for 2 or 3 years. But over the next 80 years I would have looked pretty foolish.
China is the next great country in the world, so in the case of China, I want my children to have the shares. Some of the shares will probably fail but overall it is going to be a great, great, great success. So my children some day will say, he must had been smart.
