Staying the course — Performance of the permanent portfolio since the launch of Money for Something

[2]: /2010/09/01/harry-browne-permanent-portfolio/

My book [Money for Something][1], was released in August of 2012. While the intention of the book was to teach the simple fundamentals of investing, I decided to go one step further, and describe the specific asset allocation in which I personally invest—known as the [Permanent Portfolio][2], that includes stocks, bonds, gold and cash.

As it happened, many of the book’s readers who subsequently got started in investing chose to invest in the Permanent Portfolio, rather than one of the alternative asset allocations such as the common “60/40” portfolio of stocks and bonds.
