Most US companies will perform well over time because they have people in place who will drive their companies into the future successfully.
We don't always agree, but you are 100% on here.
I invest in America. I have no equity investments anywhere else. Slightly slower growth is still growth. I have not sold anything in 4 years. Why? Every stock I own grows plus they all have a 3% dividend. Some 5%+.
I only own boring stuff. And 2/3+ of my money is in bonds.
If I sell, I have to pay capital gains tax. And where do I put my money then?
