The Consequences of Underperformance

by Bullitt on 11-30-2014 at 09:30 AM
The following message is my reply to an online publication that made the argument for actively managed funds over passive index funds. The author discussed fees for both vehicles so it is not mentioned in this response.

Decoupling? Again?

by Bullitt on 12-03-2010 at 11:06 AM
For those who forgot, a quick recap: From October of 2007 until present, bulls claimed that China would be the ultra stellar growth module for the entire universe. Nothing mattered at all because China would buy all commodities and drive global profits. Today, the rhetoric is still there but another look under the hood shows otherwise.

I've read much about how what happens in Spain, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Brazil, Germany, and Portugal doesn't matter because the problem is contained.
