Did notice another book titled something like.."Risky is the New Safe". Charlie's book?

Black,

You're referring to Gage's newest book in which ... he says that disruptive technology, accelerating speed of change ,and economic upheaval are changing the game. And that the same tired, old conventional thinking won’t get you to success today. http://www.burg.com/2012/09/risky-is-the-new-safe-an-intervi...

In other words, he's working the the broad area of "human potential", saying, as so many have, that anyone could do a lot better with our choices and lives than we do. In yet further words, Gage's book is just spin on basic, generic Buddhism. My book, if it ever gets written, would have a much narrower, bond-specific focus, and it would demonstrate that one area of what are conventionally thought to be safe investments really aren't when all of their risks are considered. So a working title might be something like,

When 'Safe' Isn't: What You Could Do About It, But Probably Won't, Because Scared to Lose Is Scared to Win

But these days, I'm doing more rod-building than bond-buying while I wait for markets to crash. (Then I put aside my toys and go back to work.)

Charlie
