Why the conventional wisdom of buying and holding a balanced portfolio is potentially dangerous.
Potential effects of national debt, deficits, and quantitative easing.

"Unconventional Investing gives you the superior intelligence needed to avoid the pitfalls of buy-and-hold investing. It clearly explains how the Federal Reserve's policies created a world that's riskier than ever. It shows you how to make sure your 401(k) is truly diversified to protect yourself in this new environment. Best of all, it even gives you great examples of funds that you can buy tomorrow."
