Suddenly, a growing number of commentators are suggesting that the worst is behind us -- in housing, employment, manufacturing, the auto sector, the technology industry, and elsewhere in between.


Aside from the fact that, historically at least, bursting bubbles have generally been followed by drawn-out and messy overshoots to the downside (e.g., more than four years), while genuine bottoms have, historically at least, gone unrecognized until well after their arrival, I have one question: why are share prices approaching intermediate term highs at the same time that bonds yields are hovering near record lows?

The truth is that it doesn't make any (economic) sense -- unless, of course, you attribute the development to unprecedented central bank intervention. In that case, the notion that things are returning to "normal" would seem to be a complete crock of sh*t (if you'll pardon my English).


I know -- I'm just a grumpy old permabear. Grrrr.
