Wharton School professor Jeremy Siegel provides a potent mix of new evidence, research, and analysis supporting his key strategies for amassing a solid portfolio with enhanced returns and reduced risk. In a seamless narrative that incorporates the historical record of the markets with the realities of today's investing environment, the fourth edition features:
A new chapter on globalization that documents how the emerging world will soon overtake the developed world and how it impacts the global economy
An extended chapter on indexing that includes fundamentally weighted indexes, which have historically offered better returns and lower volatility than their capitalization-weighted counterparts
Insightful analysis on what moves the market and how little we know about the sources of big market changes

Stocks for the Long Run is essential reading for every investor and advisor who wants to fully understand the market-including its behavior, past trends, and future influences-in order to develop a prosperous long-term portfolio that is both safe and secure.
The history of the discovery of the Free State Goldfields ~ the most fantastic mineral discovery in South Africa this century ~ is essentially the history of Welkom for, without this world-shattering event, Welkom would not have been. The clock must be turned back to the latter years of the nineteenth century when two men ~ a Mr Donaldson who was a prospector, and a Mr Hinds, an engineer ~ investigated a portion of the farm called Zoeten-Inval belonging to a Mr Barends Klopper near where the small town of Allanridge is situated today. This was believed to have been in 1896, and the pair were interested in a small outcrop of rock protruding about a foot above the ground and about two feet in length which appeared to be conglomerate pebble reef. A 60 feet pit was excavated and samples collected. The men could raise no interest among mining companies in Johannesburg, which all laughed off the idea of gold in the Free State. Then came the first setback in the mineral history of the future Free State goldfields. The men decided to return to England to have their samples analysed and, if the results proved favorable, to form a syndicate to raise capital for the continuation of the search. Disaster struck. Gossip had it that Donaldson and Hinds sailed on the ill-fated Drummond Castle which, on that trip, sank in the Bay of Biscay off the coast of France with the loss of all aboard. The hot mealie lands surrounding the peaceful hamlet of Odendaalsrust (as it was then called) lay almost untouched by a rock-pick until a persistent old prospector, Arthur Megson by name, heard of the venture and decided to investigate for himself. The farm had been divided up by this time, and the section on which the outcrop was situated was now called Aandenk and was owned by Hendrik Petrus Klopper. Megson arrived in 1904 and widened and deepened the original pit to about 100 feet. He took samples of the exposed strata away with him as they seemed to indicate some promising values. But he in turn could not obtain any financial interest and was compelled to close down the shaft. He is said to have filled it with dynamite "to prevent other from interfering with the work". For many years Megson did the rounds of the mining companies, his samples carried in a canvas bag. No one was interested until in October 1932, when he presented himself at the office of Allan Roberts, a prospector, and Minnie Jacobs, a young attorney. Megson had come to the right place at last, for Roberts had recently set himself up sufficiently by September of that year to turn his attention to his pet theory "that the Witwatersrand system of rock formation tapers down to beyond the Orange Free State, resembling the rim of a lake with Johannesburg lying in the center of the northern section of that rim". The reef formation dips gradually to the Klerksdorp mines in the south west and to Nigel about 40 miles to the south east. The southern section of the lake ~ being submerged in the Free State. At about this time Mr Roberts had said to his wife, Gladys, "Now I am ready to test my theory if it takes all the money I have and more". Megson's samples and his information gave Roberts, who had been called the man who "never turns anything down", a starting point. He and the old prospector left for Odendaalsrus the following day. After a few days spent in the area investigating the old pit, the pair returned to Johannesburg to have the new samples analysed. This job was done by a friend of Robert's, Dave Milne, an analytical chemist at the University of the Witwatersrand. Roberts was so excited when he heard the results that he decided to enlarge the small pit in the middle of the North West Free State. A Cornishman named King was enlisted, and Roberts set out on another trip to Odendaalsrus. He was convinced that there was "gold, nothing but gold - nothing more nor less". It soon became apparent that the values of the shaft and along the reef were barren and that the area would have to be tested by drilling. The Transvaal mining houses were too busy with the Rand and its extensions to spare any thought, much less time and money, for any development in the Free State, and Roberts went it alone. On 5 May 1933 the first borehole was started. As Roberts wrote in a letter, it was "the first borehole ever put down in the Free State in the search for gold. I feel very proud to determine the original site (it was about 200 yards from the pit) for the first borehole. "Work progressed, and in Johannesburg, Mannie Jacobs managed to interest one or two business men in the Roberts venture. They were Fritz Marx, a stockbroker, and Peter Woolf, a medical practitioner. Roberts became known as the "klipdokter" in the area and farmers were consistently bringing him chips of rock and stone for inspection, hoping that he would have good news for them.

The New York Stock Exchange went down 504 points today. One point less than Black Monday on October 19th 1987. They want to say that percentage wise it's a lot less but then the Stock Market has been grossly inflated since then. Perhaps it's due to the increase of speculation in dubious financial instruments such as Mortgage based securities. One day later it goes up about 300 points. Harry Reid (D-Nevada) want to legalize online gambling. I don't see the difference between that and day traders and online traders. The financial giants have gambled our futures away already. Wednesday 09/17/08 it goes down another 450 points. Who's suffering as a result of this? Not even those CEOs who lose their jobs and get MILLIONS in severance pay. What about the guys and gals in the mailrooms and the lower level data analysts at Lehman Brothers? They get to clean out their desks. Who says it isn't personal?
