It's Quiet... Too Quiet: The Permanent Portfolio Story.
Some 5500 years ago, before writing was invented to record it, the people of the city of Hamoukar, near rich copper mines, were subjected to the first known instance of urban warfare when an army from the city of Uruk attacked and fought their way through the streets, killing most everyone.

I haven't checked my portfolio in a month or so. I'll check and report back.

Looks like I'm up 10% since Jan 1. Not bad.

I'm sure my international stocks are lagging, as they have since I added them 10 years ago. Whatever. I'm at 6.3% for 10 years.
Ok let's see. My SP500 index fund has earned 14.67% over the 10 years. The FTSE All World ex US is 6.68%. I'm sure it will turn the corner any day now! :o


Whatever.
Back to summer....
