  Interesting concept. Anybody want to take a crack at it?

    Don't worry, this is not another one of my 'contest', though i am real interested about the strategy.

Here's the portfolio:

• Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF (VTI): 30%
• SPDR S&P Dividend Aristocrat (SDY): 18%
• SPDR S&P World ex-US (GWL): 9%
• iShares iBoxx Invesment Grade Corp Bond (LQD): 20%
• Vanguard Total Bond Market ETF (BND): 20%
• SPDR Gold Trust (GLD): 3%

The article basically disagrees with it. I sure would like to hear what you fools have to say.

Water, Oil, Dividends, Food. Health Care, ?   ?   ?  I know some of you fools specialize in this type of stuff.

Rec this post ? if you want some good All ETF advice?

I could compile a decent etf portfolio

ENY: Canadian Oil Trusts

GDX: Mining ETF

RJA: Replication of jim rogers agriculture index (although an etn) comprised of futures. hes been buying it, so he claims.

PUA: Good asian etf (australia, new zealand, hong kong, japan)

EEM: Emerging markets, except for gazprom, more heavily weighted toward brazil and china (the next economic superpower)

Good picks speedy....  I like PUA, and I own XTR.TO which is a canadian royalty trust ETF.

A portfolio like that is what I would recommend to anyone who doesn't have any investing experience, and doesnt mind the "get rich slow" approach.  

It's conservative, but effective.
