Given the bond flavor of our recent posts, I thought it might be interesting to talk about the bonds of other countries.? The US isn’t the only stable, developed nation offering bonds but I think we tend to forget (surely it’s not patriotism) that.? In particular, check out?this post about the potential for UK bonds or being long the Pound in general.? If the macroeconomics of a government are part of why you do or do not buy a bond, then why not look for better macroeconomics for your money?? I can understand that it requires more research to learn about someplace so far away but it might be well worth it.? I need to look into the correlations however with the US bond market because you should never underestimate the power of the US influence on the globe.
