the coronavirus, how long we’ll be isolated, or how long our economy will be shut down. There will be bankruptcies, business closures, and economic pain.

During the financial crisis of 2008, the banking system nearly collapsed. That created much more risk of ending the current economic regime and starting a new one.

And you certainly don’t need to pay hedge funds huge fees to beat the market. At its core, investing is simple: Buy great businesses at reasonable prices and hold for a long time .
