BTW this has not been a lost decade for me, by any means.

I came into 2000 with a net worth of something around $50K. I now have a net worth around $400K. I suppose it's a testament to my naivete and/or ego that I was hoping for better by now. But financially the last decade was very good to me, all things considered.


The term "lost decade" is being thrown around by several financial media types, thus the reason why I used it.

I started out the decade with about 40k in assets and have around 350k now, so I'm not complaining either.
