Historical earnings data for non-US indexes.. Anywhere to get it for free or cheap?

  1. I'm trying to find old earnings data for non-US stock indexes (Brazil, India, China, Korea, etc).

    Where can I get this data? I don't have a budget to pay thousands of $ for data, but I am willing to pay something.

    I'm just an individual, I haven't invested before but have been studying to do so for the past year. I feel like I would be flying blind by investing without knowing historical valuation metrics such as earnings, etc.

    PS- For the US' S&P500, I found a great spreadsheet provided by Yale's Bob Shiller at www.irrationalexuberance.com that provides all of the data that I need regarding the US stock market.
