Re: Young and rich

A balanced fund is inappropriate to use as risk of loss is quite real, in 2008, balanced funds declined as much as 20%+. I was the one who offered up 'balanced fund' allocation ranges for the $250K anticipated to be used for a future home purchase. I can certainly see your point of being more conse...

From Ben Inker (GMO): "The first point to understand about stock returns is their relationship with GDP growth. In short, there isn’t one. Stock returns do not require a particular level of GDP growth, nor does a particular level of GDP growth imply anything about stock market returns. This has been ...

But this is only true for people eager to work with students and publish research. It actually involves a lot of hours to do su...
