Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

For the last 200 years, the US stock market has produced a 7-8% real annual return, ie a doubling every 10 years. Same is true for the Swedish stock market for the last 100 years

That can only hold if the stock market represents a small fraction of GDP. I doubt everyone's pension could grow at 7-8%

There are three stories about the euro crisis: the Republican story, the German story, and the truth. -- Paul Krugman
