Mutual Fund Fees

Article in the Sunday New York Times about the fees investors pay for mutual funds and whether those fees are excessive. This piece contains some analysis of the U.S. Supreme Court's recent decision in Jones v. Harris.

Of note for South Carolina, the article quotes John P. Freeman, professor emeritus at the University of South Carolina School of Law, and a study Professor Freeman co-authored comparing mutual fund fees with those of public pension funds.
