Stocks, Gold or Mattress?

The info in this piece from the May 2009 issue of The Atlantic isn’t necessarily profound, though it does map out the current lay of the land investment-wise. However, it does so in a well-written and very entertaining manner. Writer Jeffrey Goldberg’s voice echoes around in my head like my own while I read this article.
Another article in the same issue – which I admit I only skimmed because I can only take so much of this depressing economic stuff – outlines how the financial industry effectively capture our government in recent years. It includes an intriguing chart (see below) depicting the escalation of the financial industry relative to the rest of the U.S. business world over the last few decades.
