The Biggest Asset Bubble in History is about to Pop | Michael Pento

  • Published on Apr 11, 2017
    The global bond market is the biggest asset bubble in history, says economist Michael Pento. By taking interest rates below 1% for 100 months, the Fed has deformed not only the bond market, but other assets such as real estate and the stock market. Many other central banks have held interest rates artificially low, sometimes taking interest rates negative. Today, the world has $14 trillion of negative yielding sovereign debt. Pento forecasts another crisis will hit later this year or early next year. At that time, he says the Fed will start “Helicopter Money.”
