Some Interesting Reading

Here are several articles that I have read over the last two days that I thought were noteworthy.

The first is an editorial from the Wall Street Journal by John Bogle, who is the founder and former chief executive of the Vanguard Group. Mr. Bogle is an investor (as opposed to a trader) and a big idea kind of person who has the interest of investors on Main Street. I believe Mr. Bogle is sincere when he talks about "Restoring Faith in Financial Markets".

The second article comes from Gary Shilling via SafeHaven: "2010 Investment Strategies: Six Areas To Buy, 11 Areas To Sell". Mr. Shilling gives the case for investing in Treasury Bonds and for a higher Dollar. These are two assets that I have recently focused on as well.

I am not into overload with useless data, but I thought these commentaries were worthy of your attention!

I have to admit I'm considerably more pessimistic than those authors are.

Unless of course, there's a total crash, scrap and rebuild of the current financial/monetary system(s), and drastic political reform.

Without that, equities will be dead for generations.
