People were shocked, they said, “Wait a second, you’re going to taper and do weak economic data? You’re going to taper into a recession?” Which is what they’re doing. But they didn’t taper, so now rates are coming back down again.
So everyone’s worried about the bond bubble, but they’re focused on nominal rates. They’re not looking at real rates. Nominal rates could come down a lot more as a way of getting real rates lower, because inflation is low it may even dip into deflation.
So we could be set up. But in the long run rates would go way up and the country would go bankrupt and we’ll all have hyper-inflation. That could be two or three or four years away. Over the course of the next year you can see a very strong bond market rally.
