Two recent articles, written by DFA Vice President Jim Parker, are both timely and compelling. The first article, entitled The China Syndrome, highlights the recent severe volatility in China's stock market, raising questions among many investors about the causes of the fall and the wider implications for the global economy and markets. The second article is entitled Greece is the Word. This article highlights how the world's markets and media financial pages have focused intensely on the standoff between debt-laden Greece and its international lenders. Both news stories have been fast-paced and difficult to keep up with. More importantly, the speculation about possible outcomes has been intense. In his articles, Parker offers insight that provides investors with a unique perspective.
