Re: For the conservative investors

If something "goes wrong" with inflation or the government to the extent where it causes a multi-decade problem to a well diversified investor or mass bankruptcies and/or defaults, we're all ****ed no matter what we do. My bet is that your average early retiree will be slightly less ****ed as we've usually got considerable debt to asset ratios and we're also probably smarter than the average bear.

Enjoy the rest of your day. want me to perform an exorcism on your husband? I think the devils in 'em.


Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
