wth: "So what's the best strategy for protecting one's portfolio? In a global economy linked by credit systems which have poisoned the fiat money of nearly all the players at the same time, it isn't clear there IS a winning strategy. The only way to win is to not play and that option doesn't exist."

As some of you know, I started shifting money into savings in August of 2007 because I no longer had a clue whether stocks, bonds or commodities were safe investments and I couldn't risk throwing it all away in the downdraft like I did in 2000. Now you are telling me NOBODY has a clue?
