Re: Help me fill in the blanks
I have to agree with Audrey that your purchasing power could be pretty quickly eroded. However, if you bought TIPS or something like OSM (listed bond that pays CPI plus a spread), you might be able to set it and forget it. I'd still hold some equities, commodities, REITs, foreign bonds, etc., but you could probably get away with a prety heavy weighting in CPI-linked fixed income.
