Below is a list of how stocks in various countries are performing (total return) over the last 3 months, year to date (YTD), and annualized over 5 years.  China has made all the headlines this last few weeks with their dramatic stock market drop, but you can see that China has done fine over a longer period of time (annualized 5 year return). Notice that Ireland has actually been positive during the past 3 months.
