My benchmark is the default (Balanced Pooled) fund which is a fixed mix of stocks and bonds and I'm behind it this year. I can live with that. When things got risky, I got safe. I still am way underweight stocks even though I see risk as moderate. That costs performance. Still... 6% and safety ain't bad.

The BIS (Bank Of International Settlement)was formed in 1930 and acts as a central bank for the world’s monetary authorities. It said extraordinary measures have reduced incentives for politicians and other borrowers to repair balance sheets, and created the illusion that central banks can do much more to stoke growth and redress imbalances. Central bank policy “buys time” in the short term for banks and governments to tackle debt overhangs, the BIS said.

How exactly these reforms will work, one can only speculate – as I do in the second half of my book, for about 200 pages. But I am no prophet, and predictions of this kind rarely work.

They see the forces shaping the future, but not the way it will turn out. ... capitalism
