In the gardners' new book, they talk about asset allocation near the end and state that 20% should go to large cap and 20% to small caps. perhaps i am being too technical, but how much do i allocate to mid-caps? i understand that the underlying principal is risk allocation but i don't know how mid-caps factor into the risk equation? for that matter i don't know if there is any risk difference b/w large, small and mid-caps?

anyone care to comment?

thx
