Welcome to the 40th Carnival of Investing, hosted by Consumerism Commentary. If this is your first visit here, feel free to take some time to learn about me and this website. Thanks to Jonathan from MyMoneyBlog for the opportunity to host this traveling event. Now, on with the show, starting with my favorites, “Editor’s Choice.” I’ve included a word count to give the reader an idea of the effort spent writing and the time required to read the submissions.

Frugal has a dismal view of the next three to five years in the stock market, and sees cracks in the Efficient Market Hypothesis. On his blog, My 1st Million at 33, he says investors in index funds will be lucky to preserve buying power after inflation (518 words).

I exercised some editorial control by not including articles that weren’t about investing, articles that had poor grammar to the point of being barely comprehensible, multiple articles from the same blog, and articles by bloggers who submit practically the same article week after week. If you weren’t included, submit again for next week’s Carnival of Investing, to be hosted by Free Money Finance.
