Nice, a K�kkenbacher! I'll implement it after next stock market crash, and only if mortgage vs house value vs net worth is still in order. Until then - Desert portfolio!

Nice article. Thanks! It's always nice to see people talking about the variety of simple asset allocations available and sharing Harry Browne's ideas.

Now if we can just get these financial guys to stop using single arbitrary start dates to draw definitive conclusions about portfolios. I think a major draw of the PP is not the returns alone but how incredibly consistent it was no matter what timefreame you sample. They start to get there with the Sortino talk, but IMHO it goes deeper than that. The PP is simply an extremely dependable portfolio.

Agree Tyler. Man I really wish there was a smartly leveraged cheap ETF of the PP. I’d be all in on it.
