Inflation is making a comeback - although the Federal Reserve doesn't think so - prompting us to determine how we might hedge against it, or benefit from rising prices. Witness higher prices everywhere: at the grocery for meat and coffee, at the gasoline pump, rents, even health care. Invest in companies that benefit from rising prices, such as exchange-traded funds Market Vectors Agribusiness ETF (MOO) that correspond to the price and yield of the Market Vectors Global Agribusiness Index.

You could make the argument that the decline of thoroughbred racing in Maryland began in 1955 when a shotgun flared in the dark hallway of a Long Island mansion. In the nearly 51 years between that tragic night and Maryland-trained Barbaro's Kentucky Derby victory on May 6, the state where American horse racing was born has witnessed a steep drop in the quality of its racing, the disappearance of countless horse farms, and the closing of tracks, such as Bowie Race Course. Maybe most significantly, however, Maryland has never recovered from the loss of Belair Stud & Stable, the nation's most successful horse-racing facility for much of the first half of the 20th century, which vanished beneath thousands of William Levitt-built tract homes in the early 1960s.
