<<In the 20th century, especially when the bond bear market of 1940-80 is factored in, stocks outperformed bonds. But is there any reason why this might reoccur in the 21st century?>>

Here's a good Bernstein article that attempts to answer your question

http://www.efficientfrontier.com/ef/701/cheap.htm

In short, Bernstein expects Investment-Grade Corporate bonds, and TIPs to outperform Domestic LC

A caveat:

"Understand that "expected" returns are just that. In finance, as in life, there is often a huge chasm between what is expected and what actually happens."

Regards,

Ben
