In this episode the speaker says that her current allocation in index funds is in the vanguard total stock market index fund. I have always read to have at least 30% in international stocks. Is it a good idea to have 100% in a total stock domestic index fund? Or would you suggest to do 70% total stock market index and 30% total international stock index?
