Any Hope for Spain, Italy ETFs?

I do not have exposure here, except through all-world funds like iShares All World (ACWI) and Vanguard Total World (VT). I also have one client with a smidgen of iShares MSCI Austria Investable Market Index (EWO). Yet for the most part, I endeavor to keep the risks of ETF investing low.

Nevertheless, for those of you with riskier constitution, those of you with regret about not buying during the worst of the U.S. credit crunch, those of you who believe that European pessimism may be already priced in, a siren calls.

At the time of publication Gordon held shares of iShares All World and Vanguard All-World.
