today that declares actively managed funds as "obsolete."
And it's not like the article appeared on some blog; the article,

was published on Forbes.com
"Actively managed funds are no longer necessary whenever an index fund becomes available in an asset class. And available they are!" writes Richard
, founder of Portfolio Solutions and co-author of The Bogleheads'
Guide to Retirement Planning
to see the rest of the Ferri's article.
