All eyes are on Germany as the World Cup is in full swing. And, although the recent global market correction has effected Germany too, many agree that Germany has great economic potential going forward.

The Los Angeles Times mentioned today "It is a little-known fact that in spite of Germany’s unexceptional economic data, no other industrial nation has so successfully harnessed the opportunities offered by an interconnected global economy."

The easiest and most economic way to get exposure to Germany in your portfolio is via the exchange traded fund, iShares MSCI Germany (EWG).  Top holdings in this ETF include Siemens, Allianz, Deutsche Bank and DaimlerChrysler.  EWG is up 5.3% for the year.
