Investing Blog Roundup: Vanguard Index Changes

This week, Vanguard announced that a number of funds, including very popular funds such as Vanguard Total Stock Market and Vanguard Total International Stock, will soon begin tracking new indexes.

A Testimonial:

"A wonderful book that tells its readers, with simple logical explanations, our Boglehead Philosophy for successful investing." - Taylor Larimore, author of The Bogleheads' Guide to Investing


  1. I always get excited to read the “Retired by 50 (45) (55)” articles, but they always end up disappointing for one reason or another, usually because those that supposedly retired are “cheating” in some way – huge pension, fully paid healthcare, spouse still working, etc …

    sure enough, right in the middle of the article you link to above …
    “It’s worth noting that his wife still works as schoolteacher, which helps to secure the family’s health insurance.”

    Guy is not retired … he is a stay-at-home husband … nothing wrong with that, but he’s not retired any more than my stay-at-home wife is.
