Bogleheads Conference by Jason Zweig

Post by Sheepdog » Fri Oct 05, 2018 10:29 pm

Do read this nice WSJ story about the current Bogleheads Conference in Philadelphia. "Jack Bogle's Bogleheads Keep Investing Simple. You Should Too." https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/savinga ... li=BBnbfcN
This week, 200 investors met in Pennsylvania at a conference that is a cross between a religious revival and an M.B.A. finance class.

The Bogleheads, as the group is known, converged to thank their hero, Vanguard Group founder John C. Bogle. They also came to swap stories and advice about investing—and to be part of a community reinforcing the message that investing can be simple as pie and cheap as dirt.

Since 2000, the group has grown from a handful of diehards to a free online forum, bogleheads.org, with 75,000 registered users and more than three million posts on every conceivable personal-finance topic.
I liked the photo of Jack and others too. Wish I could have been there.

What a great group we are a part of, Bogleheads.

We sat out this year to give others a chance to go. Next year we may not feel so charitable. Hope to see everyone in ‘19!

FYI - The Bogleheads conference is discussed in this thread: 2018 Bogleheads Conference Notes

Let's use this thread for Jason Zweig's article.

I merged Taylor Larimore's post into the on-going discussion. The article appearing in the WSJ is somewhat different than the OP's version from msn.com.

Also please note that WSJ articles are behind a paywall.
