Absolute gold! Thank you so much, Taylor, and Happy (belated) Birthday! :beer

If you are still interested in research, the latest quotes from Jack Bogle made me think of a "homework" assignment for you: what do the experts say about investing in international stocks? Just an idea. Thanks again for your work for all of us "youngsters"!

We've created a new wiki article for this thread: What the experts say about investing

The article is linked from the "See also" section of Bogleheads® investment philosophy and Video:Bogleheads® investment philosophy.

Bogleheads:

I began investing in 1950 at the age of 26 when the S&P 500 Index was under 20. Today, on my 91st birthday, The S&P 500 Index is over 2,000 (not including dividends).

Nearly everything I know about investing I learned from experience, reading, and listening to experts who know much more than I do. This is my ninety-first birthday gift to you:

Btw, I'm new here and I logged on tonight to read more posts and find a post, in a different thread, by you in particular...and to ask about the Bogleheads Guide Books...I saw you were online and without putting 2+2 together, I thought about PMing you, then I realized who you are, the hard working, heroic author himself... haha! :o

Thank you!

Until next time...
