Our Three-Part Antidote to Investment Anxiety
1) The simplicity of the long term.
Nothing but long-term investment thinking makes sense to us. We see the short term -- anything less than a few years -- as a coin flip. Evidence supports our intuition, with studies showing good financial-market predictability over longer horizons and none over shorter horizons. And there is no better remedy for today's flood of media and turbulence of markets than a view to the soothing horizon.
2) The Logic of Investment Physics.
All investment expectations are not created equally, and reasonable expectations best ensure a quiet mind. While most foolishly forecast next year's return or dangerously extrapolate last century's result, our long-term expectations are based on Investment Physics and its laws of financial motion, which work across all time and space. Amid the unrelenting noise, these laws offer a steadying signal for your future saving, investing, and spending.
