These do not always go together: sometimes bad decisions do not lead to bad outcomes. For example, a drunk driver may drive home without an accident but still regret and blame himself for his irresponsibility. In investment, the parallel is with instances when undue risk-taking happens to be rewarded. The fact that an investor got away with it does not mean that the risks were reasonable, nor that it was a good decision. Sometimes a bad outcome results from a good decision, for example if the drunk takes a taxi home but by chance the taxi is involved in an accident.

But as a first approximation, the break-even rate is the best “rule of thumb” there is for a market forecast of inflation. If a long-term investor has strong views that the break-even rate is likely to prove either overoptimistic or overpessimistic, these views should reasonably influence how the investor moves away from the safety of inflationlinked bonds in implementing strategy. Investors whose risk-free investment is an inflation-linked government bond should have a strategic position in conventional government bonds if they expect conventional bonds to provide an adequate reward for expected inflation and a risk premium above it.

Instead, our understanding of the uncertain relationships between markets has always involved a trade-off between broadly appropriate alternative investment strategies which appear to lie within the range of what is best described as the “fuzzy frontier”. This means that in any particular situation there will always be strategies that are demonstrably inefficient or that involve a clearly inappropriate risk profile. But there will also be a range of strategies that are each broadly appropriate, given our current state of knowledge of markets and the risk tolerance of investors.
