Growing numbers of investors believe that Emerging Markets are here to stay this time. Erratic, cyclical behavior like some 10 years ago during the Ruble and Mexico peso crisis doesn't seem to be a feasible scenario. At least not to the extent that it will change the long-term outlook.
The BRIC nations are here to stay as new superpowers, and interest in other Emerging Tigers and Frontiers is growing as well. Tons of analysts are speculating about the outlook, week after week.
