Rate of Return – Invest in Stocks Not Bonds

The USA Plan does not call for the taxpayers to invest in any financial instruments other than stock. This schedule illustrates that on average stocks earn four times more bonds. The USA Plan specifically avoids either government or Wall Street involvement which precludes investments in US Treasuries. As private sector bond funding is used as leverage to increase profits the USA Plan opts not for bonds but for the equity appreciation of stocks that bond leverage provides.
