He seemed like a good man. I think he's done quite a bit more than even Buffett for the average investor. Not only with the low cost index fund itself but also with forcing other places to reduce the costs for funds too.

He probably did more for most regular investors than anyone else. Sad news. Financial history will remember him for a long time.

My Math for Liberal Arts instructor has given us an extra credit assignment.

The assignment requires a 5 minute oral presentation (with visuals) about a historical individual who made an impact on the world & how this person used math to accomplish their work.

I'm doing mine on John Bogle & index investing.
Healthcare 32.7% - CVS DVA EW NVO // BRK.B - 20.6% // Media & Communication 8.3% - CHTR DIS

Drinkers & Smokers 7.5% - ABEV MO // Auto's & Oil 12.4% - CLB GPC VDE // Tech 0.0%

%'s held @ MV 06/18/2019 minus 18.3% investable cash

You may know the man, the capitalist with a soul, well but thought the following reference could instil some inspiration:
http://www.philly.com/business/john-bogle-dead-vanguard-obituary-20190116.html
"While Mr. Bogle was facile with numbers, he was much less interested in counting than in what counts, and his intellectual range was broad."
I would say his impact was mutual in nature.
