    Very interesting view. And as a whole I agree.
    But I don’t understand how you came up with an S&P 500 return of 1821% over the last 30 years! On January 12 1986, the S&P 500 closed at 211. 30 years later, on January 4, 2016, the S&P 500 closed at 1940. (1940-211)/211 =820%.
    It is of course a very nice return but it does not crush the emerging market return (about 700%) as your article seems to suggest it.
    However, due to the much stronger stability of the US from different perspectives compared to the rest of the world, including Europe, the US market remains a safe haven to my eyes as well.

    The positives you list for the USA, are probably correct. HOWEVER, a pip squeek country, like N Korea, OR Iran, can put ALL of the positives of the US, back to the 18th century, with a mere 50/100 Mill.$, they can launch an EMP from almost any where 100 mi. off our coast, AND WE ARE TOAST!!!
