New Op-Ed in Wall Street Journal
Admin - Jun 27, 2006

Mr. Bogle and Prof. Malkiel co-authored an op-ed that runs in today’s Wall Street Journal in defense of market capitalization-weighted indexing. They wrote, in part:

While we have witnessed many “new paradigms” over the years, none have persisted. The “concept” stocks of the Go-Go years in the 1960s came, and went. So did the “Nifty Fifty” era that soon followed. The “January Effect” of small-cap superiority came, and went. Option-income funds and “Government Plus” funds came, and went. High-tech stocks and “new economy” funds came as well, and the survivors remain far below their peaks. Intelligent investors should approach with extreme caution any claim that a “new paradigm” is here to stay. That’s not the way financial markets work.
