Don't look now, but it's coming soon to billboards and lawn signs near you: “Keep Christ in Christmas!” If memory serves, one first started seeing this slogan right around the time that the whole political correctness craze hit. Towns started removing manger scenes from their squares, and businesses stopped sending out Christmas cards and began to send “Holiday Greetings” instead.

Financial sights are projecting, we are moving from “a golden age” of investments and economic growth (1982-2007) to a “grey age”. From nominal 12.8% returns to 2.8% returns. The next ten years, we may be going through 3 more recessions. With the baby boomers aging it may take to 2027 before returns get to golden age levels.
