My thoughts on the worst decade for stocks in recorded history and the outlook for the next ten years.

On another note, for those who are interested in following/ commenting on my analysis on a different platform, I can now be found on Twitter.

Boy, there isn't a whole lot of difference there.  2.4% inflation per year?  Only the Fed believes that. 

 Actually, not even them.  But they do spew it forth.

@Harold71,

Thanks for your interest. You raise an interesting point that could by itself be the basis of a complex discussion.

Unfortunately, I can only work with available data. In this case, I used the CPI-U (produced by the Bureau of Labor Statistics) as a proxy for inflation. Can you recommend an index that is more representative of inflation?

Best,
