Set forth below is the text of an e-mail that I sent to the author of the Pop Economics Blog on February 25:
This is Rob Bennett, author of the “A Rich Life” blog.
Rajiv Sethi linked yesterday to your blog entry defending the Buy-and-Hold model from my criticisms of it. In my comment (at the bottom of the long comments section), I said that I would contact you to see if you have an interest in hosting a Guest Blog Entry by me responding to the points you made in the “Rob Bait” piece. I think you have taken a potentially breakthrough step in moving this discussion to a more elevated and warm and civil and learning-oriented level. My aim in writing a Guest Blog Entry would be to continue moving things in that direction while also of course arguing the anti-Buy-and-Hold case.
I would be grateful if you would let me know if you have an interest.
I greatly admire your work and would love to be working together with you in this way to take things to a more productive and constructive and life-affirming place.
