Harry Dent, author of The Roaring 2000's, advises switching to 100% bonds by 2009. By then, the great demographic spending wave will start to peter out as the baby boomers age.

It will be interesting to see if the baby boomers hold fast to "Stocks for the Long Run" at the very time that their "grandfather's T-bonds" may be the best investment.>>>>>>

What will you do intercst? Will you switch to 100% bonds? 50%? X%? If yes, when?


If it looks like Dent's demographic analysis is still on track (he predicts 41,000 on the Dow by 2009), I'll probably start shifting 10% per year of my portfolio (currently over 90% stock) to 30-Year US Treasuries in 2005 with the goal of being 50% bonds by 2009.
