I did come across this ETF from PowerShares while doing some research but did not take a close look at it or its performance in detail. The symbol is PID and here's a link to the basic info:

Absoutely -- good point, and an important one!
Fantastic insights from all of you. It's given me some great ideas for further areas of research!
Interesting points -- for longer-term taxable investments though, it seems that this would an appropriate strategy. My guess for Henri would be that many retail investors have just gotten to the point of differentiating their global holdings between small and large cap global, and between growth and value stocks. Dividend analysis hasn't really come into the picture. But with more experts advising a higher chunk of holdings outside the US this may change.
Very interesting. Will look forward to reading that. Do dividends act as a counter weight to things like stock options which seem in some cases seem to increase the temptation for management to make riskier bets? Maybe dividends are a better solution than clawbacks and other ideas about moderating the risk motivation in executive pay.
