When reading or listening to a pundit (or other wise guy) I always assume that they have a hidden agenda. This could be a book (new or old), a blog, a "gadget", or a scam that they are working. This goes for Jack Bogle or any other person that I generally agree with.

I'm not a black helicopter guy but I have not gotten where I am today by not paying attention.

I agree, and sometimes the 'agenda' for them is still a win-win for all.

Think Adam Smith - the butcher, baker, brewer. They each have an agenda, but we trade with them for mutual benefit.

But always look for the agenda, and consider the price you are paying.
