Invest in Japan? March 20th, 2011

Invest in Japan?

Barron’s has a lead article titled “Invest in Japan.” What do you think? Time to jump in after the huge tragedy? From my own experience, tragedies are one of the best times to jump in. Take 9/11, quick slide, nice and quick recovery. Will Japan be the same? Nobody really knows, especially with the current level of uncertainty.

If you do want to invest, as I’m thinking about it, I think investing in ETFs is the smart way to go.
