The best place on the web for investment advice is now Bogleheads Investing Advice and Info
They even have a Wiki with lots and lots of info and links, although it is not that well organized. Also, a number of the experts cited in the tutorial thread have published new books that are worthwhile reading.
In the end, there are two main camps on asset allocation:
1. Those that advocate the total market index approach with no overweighting, and
2. Those that advocate a small-cap and value overweighting in a so-called slice-and-dice approach.
You can pick your camp or anywhere in-between. It would be unusual to go outside of these boundaries though.
These 2 camps argue all the time on the bogleheads forum. Of course, there are other investing arguments on the web all the time: active vs index, do-it-yourself vs pay-an-advisor, beaver-cheese-futures vs pancakes-on-bunnies, Dex vs Ziggy, etc.
