    BTW – I doubt if Plosser’s opinions are viewed seriously by the markets as I don’t think his 4% Fed Funds rate in 2016 has been priced in by Fama’s efficient market.

    Thoughts financial and business journalism from Gerard Baker, editor-in-chief Dow Jones and Company and managing editor of The Wall Street Journal:
    (links to google doc notes)

    “The financial crisis of 2008 then made newspaper editors question why they didn’t see it coming.”

    Rick Ferrari article….talk about cherry picking your data to prove the conclusion you already made!!!

    Mr. Ferrari uses the 5 year period ending 2013 to show that active funds don’t outperform?! When you stack the deck like that how can you lose??? The S&P is up, what 170-180% from the low that occurred in early 2009?

    I wonder how that same five year period looked at the end of 2008????

    • Dude, its a link to an interesting piece. Calm TF down.

      Regardless, he is a Buy & Hold investor who advocate avoiding stock picking or market timing and suggests instead people simply do cheap long term investing.
