I am recently engage in a research in my economic class. The topic I am doing research on is about the difference between stocks and bonds. I am trying to find some information on this topic. as well as some information on how do investers know which to invest at certain economic situation.

Dear dtc,

Welcome to the Motley Fool.

You can learn about the difference between stocks and bonds by reading through our Investing Basics feature, located at http://www.fool.com/School/Basics/InvestingBasics.htm?ref=HTIbscs

We Fools are not market timers, so you won't find too much information here about investing in 'such and such' during an economic situation. I think we try to teach risk awareness, allocation, and evaluating a business. That way, you stay the course with any of your investments. Here are some articles that may help you:
