Bogleheads XIV!

Jack’s memo on

To my wonderful Bogleheads,

Our fourteenth annual gathering was truly heartwarming and informative–a triumph that gave me much joy and inspiration. Thank you all for coming, for being so attentive, for taking such good care of each other, for enjoying those two days of intensive contemplation, and–of course–for that magnificent walking stick, an echo of Ben Franklin, the consummate entrepreneur and citizen of Philadelphia and the United States of America.

I’ve reviewed my 55-slide (ouch!) presentation, and am posting it on my e-blog––momentarily. While it’s essentially unchanged from what you saw at our meeting, I did change the order in a few spots, and revised several numbers to conform with other things that I’ve written (notably the expected returns presented on slides #47 and #50. In the interests of continuity and clarity, I’ve also added tag lines at the base of each slide to set what’s coming up next.

Enjoy seeing this presentation again! And enjoy with me another few moments of the memories of the bright sun in which we basked together–intellectually, jointly, and in yet another Philadelphia autumn.

Looking forward, eagerly and hopefully, to Bogleheads XV. Best, always,
