    Dear Andrew,

    I attended one of your two sessions on investing for retiring at the EARCOS conference in Kota Kinabalu last spring. You mentioned having a balanced portfolio with one's age %-age in government bonds. My husband and I are American and wondered what the advisability is to buy American government bonds given the uncertainty of the budget right now and the fact that there is such a debt. Could you advise? Thank you.

  4. Hi Carol,

    Thanks for the question. I don't think there will be a problem owning U.S. government bonds. I wanted to give your question a lot of consideration, and explain my thoughts on it, so I spent the morning writing a blog post that details my thoughts thoroughly. The post comes out in two days.

    Thanks again Carol,
