Bogle: Keep Investing

Post by Eagle33 » Thu Mar 26, 2020 11:49 am

Video interview of Jack Bogle back during the Great Recession. Seems appropriate for the times we are currently in.

The founder and former CEO of Vanguard on why to stay the course amid the financial crisis. (9/23/08) Bogle: Keep Investing
Rocket science is not “rocket science” to a rocket scientist, just as personal finance is not “rocket science” to a Boglehead.

Save and invest. Save and invest. Save and invest.

Unless, of course, one loses one's income. To suppose such a thing is impossible is an example of hubris.

thanks for sharing.

the three things that shined through:
1. how he handled the panic at that time with such equanimity.
2. how humble he was
3. the true measure of personhood is how one gives back to community.

you are missed Jack.
