Stocks: The Asset of Choice for the Long Run: The Future for Investors - Yahoo! Finance
This is vintage Siegel, a great article about how stocks are, historically the best asset class to invest for long periods of time. Though the professor uses a couple "investment" terms in the article that may sound foreign to you, the rest of the article is well worth reading. The professor predicts 6% Real (means after inflation) returns for stocks over the long run, a pretty hefty return considering bonds might be at 2.5% long term.
