1980s Were the Dawn of U.S. Investors' Liberation Movement
Maryland Daily Record (08/01/00) Vol. 22, No. 49 p.3B; Strudwick, Barry

Barry Strudwick asserts that the 1980s marked the beginning of a revolution in U.S. investment. The movement began with money-market funds, then no-load mutual funds and asset allocation. According to Strudwick, the financial market was further defined by the 1990s, a decade distinguished by the upheaval of banking deregulation and the introduction of the discount broker and online trading. Strudwick says these events worked together to liberate the individual investor, who now, as a result of this movement, has more investment options and an array of strategies from which to select.
