What do falling commodity prices mean for emerging market economies?

I think the emerging markets are great fiscal stories, says Tim Seymour and you can absolutely relax if you’re a long-term investors. I honestly believe you’ll be very happy over the next 5-10 years, he counsels.

However, if you’re a trader, Brazil, South Africa and China look to be most vulnerable right now because they are exporters of the commodities that are under pressure. By contrast, I still love Taiwan and Russia.
