I notice that, from Jan 1976 - Dec 1981, cash and a 46/64 portfolio (US stocks and intermediate Treasury) yielded the same inflation adjusted CAGR of 0.07%. Bonds did worse than cash, and stocks did better. It's funny, because these days cash is considered the very lowest ring of the ladder, or below that: nothing more than trash. If inflation heated up enough to make the Fed act, that could change. Not expecting this.
