To start off my weekend reading list, Rob Carrick’s recent article rises to the top; the sad end of saving and investing, something I tend to agree with. With bonds and GICs offering almost nothing in return when inflation is factored in, with stock markets being as turbulent as they are with the European debt crisis in full flight (not to mention we’ve got our own debt issues in Canada), Rob’s article definitely hit home with me; the need to temper long-term investment expectations. I know I’m not alone when I say I’ve read plently about deleveraging and austerity measures, which is concerning, because with these measures I’m not sure where investors can go. If you didn’t get a chance to read Rob’s article, check it out. Let me know what you think.
