It would be amazing if on 10/19/2047 we also had a 9% return but I don't see it being anywhere close to that. Maybe 5% if we are lucky.
The US is a resilient country, and we have survived substantial portions of our young killed off in wars, incompetent leadership, high inflation, etc. Still keep plugging along and expanding the pie.
Iím optimistic, but still plan for the worst and hope for the best.
