    Is there an "everything bubble" at the moment?

    A seriously question. Is this hyperbole or does the concept of a current 'everything bubble' exist?

    Or perhaps, this is just more "speculation" that has been going on for a couple/few years.


    My MarketWatch


    The Everything Bubble is about to deflate, says Jared Dillian


    Getty Images
    It wasn’t always this way. We never used to get a giant, speculative bubble every seven to eight years. We really didn’t.
    In 2000, we had the dot-com bubble.
    In 2007, we had the housing bubble.
    In 2017, we have the everything bubble.

    I did not coin the term “the everything bubble.” I do not know who did. Apologies (and much respect) to the person I stole it from.

    Why do we call it the everything bubble? Well, there is a bubble in a bunch of asset classes simultaneously.

    And the infographic below that my colleagues at Mauldin Economics created paints the picture best.

    I don’t usually predict downturns, but this time I bet my reputation that a downturn is coming. And soon.

    When there’s nothing left but systemic risk, everyone’s portfolio is on the line. To that end, I’ve put together a FREE actionable special, Investing in the Age of the Everything Bubble, in which I discuss ways to prepare for the coming bloodbath. Download it.


    Jared Dillian is a former Lehman Brothers head of ETF trading who has traded through two bear markets. He says a downturn is coming soon and elaborates in this free special report.

    Bond market is ending its run, interest rates are rising, equities will hit their worst bear market since Dotcom and property is heading south.

    Life is good again but with the £ on par with the $US it sure is going to be painful.

    The US economy relies on spending. It can't last forever.

    (NBC News) A just-released Federal Reserve report shows credit card debt has reached a record high at $1 trillion.

    Survey results from CreditCard.com found that those in debt are outright pessimistic about digging their way out.
    "About two thirds of American adults with debt aren't convinced that they're ever going to get out of it," said Matt Schulz of CreditCard.com
    Schulz says their survey comes at the beginning of a year where debt could get worse because interest rates are rising and wages are still stagnant.

    Credit card debt reaches record high

    No, we have the orange cunto narrative of how great things are.

    There has been plenty of reporting on student debt, credit card debt and even car loan debt hanging ominously over the seppos.

    And many MSM shows and channels as well. It started about a year and a half before the election, when the MSM wanted the status quo candidate (HRC) to win and kept saying how the economy was good, while Obama promoted his legacy by lying (like all Presidents do) by saying "the economy has healed." - it certainly has not but U3 unemployment is down.

    Yes, it has been reported.

    Plenty?

    I would say that.

    Whatever you do don't look at Zerohedge.com you will never recover

    To be fair many of the articles published there, from various soothsayers, have been predicting it.

    The US$ decline since 2016 hasn't helped ameristanis for sure.

    It's been building up for years, and I don't know when (or how) it will end.

    Massive, and increasing, concentration of wealth, driving up the price of all financial assets.
    Exacerbated by the fact that, for years now, interest rates have been kept artificially low by central banks.

    So good old fashioned savers like me, who took care of their financial future with our savings, have been crucified. Speculators- rewarded. So much for the good books.

    I can't help but feel it will end in tears, but would also remind you of an old financial adage- "Trends last longer when you think". So I wouldn't bet on the timing, personally. Indeed, before the crash comes, speculative bubbles tend to accelerate- and sucker many people in the process.

    Personally, I'm looking forward to a crash, but I certainly cannot determine it's timing. I have nothing really to lose you see- all of my liquid money is in bank accounts, returning artificially low rates of interest- next to nothing frankly. I, like many others, have only been punished for my financial prudence in this brave new world. So I quite look forward to the day I can become a vulture investor again, and make up for lost ground.

    Which fits quite well in this particular thread. They do have pretty graphs.

    If only I hadn't taken "the wrong step years ago", life would have been so different.

    Maybe.

    It's cool, my soothsayer is harmlessly peppering the eggs.

    It's a population bubble, surely? Underpinning what looks like an information bubble.

    Capt Nemo is off to join the Eugenics society it seems.

    As I always say, anyone who says the world is over crowded should top themselves. DIRECT ACTION.

    Bubbles are made to crash and always do. Christ has yet to cum the first time. Or maybe he has. Magdalene, one of his groupies was a woman of questionable morals don't ya know.
