Re: Market Crash Stategies?

My strategy is to hold assets that will do well during bad times. This excludes credits and junk bonds, for example, that will head south along with everything else. But you do pay a price for such portfolio protection.

Re: Are TIPS right for retired investors?

David Swensen has recommended 50% of fixed income in TIPS. The trouble with that recommendation is that you wind up with a portfolio that has much much less credit risk than TBM and therefore much lower return.
