Duel Flashback:
Mutual Funds

Six months ago we tackled the merits of managed mutual funds. Our stance on the abuses of the mutual fund industry has been well-documented. Back in September our own David Gardner let the management companies have it when he spoke before the U.S. House of Representatives.

But are all managed funds bad? That was what Paul Larson (TMF Parlay) and I (TMF Edible) debated. With no real gauge to declare the ultimate winner there are no W's or L's to hand out this week, but you might want to reflect back on that engaging bout.
