"Overseas investments---holdings in the corporations of other nations----are not essential, nor even necessary, to a well-diversified portfolio. For investor who disagree---and there are some valid reasons for global investing----we recommend limiting international investments to a maximum of 20% if a global equity portfolio".

The issues of (slightly) higher expenses and currency risk do not seem compelling to me. Betting all of your money on one country's stock performance when there are dozens of countries among which to spread risk just doesn't sound to me like a prudent strategy. Hopefully, I can take this position and still be considered a Boglehead.
