This system hedges against both hyperinflation and deflation and includes an equity kicker.  It can be flexibly implemented. Is there a better system? Compare your returns, the work you do to get those returns, and the logic behind the system.  If this system is better, switch.  And don’t forget to give 25% of your improved returns to charity and let me know about it.  If you have a better system, let me know at ron@goldbondstocks.com.
