Poll: Which should investors fear more? Which #CFA2010 speakers were right?

CFA Institute Annual Conference speakers raised many concerns about the future during the conference, which ran from May 16 to May 19 in Boston. But they didn't always agree with one another. Their mixed opinions inspired this month's poll.

Which do you fear more? 
* Inflation or deflation? 
* Continued fiscal stimulus or spending cuts to focus on deficit reduction?

Please answer the poll in the right-hand column of this blog. I'll report on the results in the July issue of my e-newsletter.

For a sampling of the mixed opinions, see
