Lessons, or Lesions, from 2008

I’m back after an extended vacation from the blog. I’ve been a bit busy, so I’ll start with some good assessments of the year in ETFs and what we can learn from this historic period in investing.

Index Universe puts up two good stories evaluating the past year. Murray Coleman takes a deep look at how ETFs performed last year and decides that they defied stereotypes. Meanwhile, Larry Swedroe, the director of research of the Buckingham family of financial services and author of “Wise Investing Made Simple” looks at the lessons of 2008.

Originally, I had typed that lesions of 2008. I wonder if maybe that wasn’t a typo after all.
