The article comments on a statement issued by USA Today columnist John Waggoner regarding the market performance of foreign financial markets during the 1970s.

He states that investment experts forecasted in 1994 positive returns that the U.S. market would make over the following years. The author argues against Waggoner who called international investing intelligent speculation.
