Dear Friends:

Since I am quite new to City-Data Forums, I don't know if this 'OP' can be pasted to other Forums. IF City-Data has a business Forum, then I would expect the experts to support that Forum. And they would already know the following information.
So my direction is to people - - in general - - who have an interest in the Chicago land areas. - - and may not be a business expert. I am NOT a business expert. However I am knowledgable in many subjects because I am an author. My pen name is "Carter Glass". I specialize in history.
Every quarter, I receive a free business newsletter from "Northern Trust". The "Northern Trust Perspective Newsletter" for August 2007, is quite interesting with its Headline, "Financial Conditions Begin Tightening". Are we starting to see the collapse of our economy? Read that newsletter to find out. It is on the Internet with the address of "www.northerntrust.com/perspective"

You posted to the Business and Finance Forum, so you're in the right place.

I pasted the link into my browser. I couldn't find the article you refer to and no the economy is not collapsing.

Here are two articles from a different thread.

Thanks to NewtoCA for posting the links below.

Default Hello Muffinman

Dear Friend:

After writing my 'op', I also checked the perspective for August. I also could not find it. Since it arrived in printed form in my snail mail, this morning, maybe it has not yet been posted on their Northern Trust Internet site. If you have an interest, contact Northern Trust and let them know you want to read it. They might even give you a free subscription for all of your efforts.
Incidentally, someone moved this original 'op' without telling me where it was sent. So like I have mentioned in the past, I don't understand how the Forum system functions.

Best Regards,

Carter Glass

NewtoCA posted both links. I didn't have anything to do with that.

I've read it, their conclusion is:

"We continue to recommend that portfolios overweight large-cap U.S. stocks and international developed markets. Bonds should be underweighted."

In other words, they support ownership of large stocks over small companies, and owning stocks in mature international markets vs developing international markets. They favor this over ownership of bonds.
