Bogleheads®  Live with J.L. Collins: Episode 19

Post on: September 5, 2022 by Rick Ferri

The Bogle Center is pleased to present the nineteenth episode of Bogleheads® Live. Our guest for our episode is JL Collins , the author of The Simple Path to Wealth, and creator of an online content provider, known for his Stock Series, a series of blog posts that makes complex investment concepts accessible to the beginner investor. JL advocates for an impressively simple approach to investing that relies entirely on exactly two index funds – Vanguard’s Total Stock Market Index Fund (VTSAX) and Vanguard Total Bond Market Index Fund (VBTLX) – to achieve total market diversification. JL talks about his investment approach and a range of other topics including market volatility, fixed income investing, tax-advantaged accounts and early withdrawals, Black Monday and humble pie, why average investment returns are anything but, inflation and deflation, investing versus speculating, cryptocurrency, and how to talk to someone about making the switch to an index fund investment strategy.
