Jared's Articles

It was quite a day with the CPI number recently. So, I want to talk a bit about regimes. There are so few clear examples of regime change in the business. From here on out, dips in bonds will be bought, and rallies in the dollar will be sold. And small caps will outperform large caps for the foreseeable future, advises Jared Dillian, editor of The 10th Man.
What impact will the latest Middle East conflict have on markets? One way to figure out is to go back and look at what markets did in every war in history and try to draw some conclusions about what they will do today. Unfortunately, there are no conclusions to be drawn. Every war is different, writes Jared Dillian, editor of The 10th Man.
Over the last 100 years, the US equity market has returned about 9% annually. What will it return over the next 100 years? Well, the index fund promoters say that history will repeat itself and that the next 100 years will look like the last 100 years, so you should go to Vanguard.com and put all your money in the Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund (VTI). I don’t believe this to be true, claims Jared Dillian, editor of The 10th Man

But for any country, there are really only two terrible outcomes: Depression and Hyperinflation. Everything in between is manageable, counsels Jared Dillian, editor of The 10th Man.
