Last week on the Mullooly Asset Podcast, we discussed the potential ramifications of the monetary and fiscal response from the Fed and Congress during the COVID-19 shutdowns. It’s hard to put Pandora back in the box. Check it out!
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
- Inflation seems to be on the mind of investors constantly even though it’s been relatively nonexistent for a while. Michael writes about new investor fear that inflation will soon make a comeback, and links to a discussion he had on his podcast Animal Spirits.
- A new study from The New York Times showed that since 2000 long term bonds have beaten stocks pretty handily. Ben decided to take a closer look at the numbers and move around the starting date. He shows just how often it is that long bonds have beaten stocks.
- Everybody knows that time is our most precious resource, yet we’ve become all too familiar with finding ways to distract ourselves and kill time. David writes encouraging readers not to kill time and the benefits that come along with it.
- This article focuses on looking past the short term “right versus wrong” debate when it comes to investment decisions, and redefining what it means to be “right” in the first place. Just because an investment made money in the short term doesn’t mean it was necessarily the “right” move.
