Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No, probably not, which is why individuals don't usually invest in bonds -- institutions do.  For individuals, cash is probably about as safe as bonds, but for billionaire institutions, including governments and non-profit foundations who have been burned in the credit crisis, holding cash is usually much more expensive compared to holding low-risk bonds.
