The problem really now is that interest rates are so low. Many investors would love to put their money or a portion thereof into safter vehicles, but with an essentially negative return after inflation, what's the point?

We've never (at least in this prolonged financial cycle) faced such chronically low interest rates for such an extended period of time. Doom for the system as it currently stands is a rise in effective interest rates. Then you will begin to watch this thing unfold like a lawn chair...
 Quoting: Saddletramp

Interest rate (and in general, economic data manipulation) = the silent weapons for the quiet war on class. The vast majority of seniors are saver who hope to live on the return on their savings - this return has been stripped via ZIRP while at the same time their COLAs have been suppressed thus forcing them into the risker vehicles proffered by the investment casino gulag - it is a quiet way ofshearing the sheep via despair and increasingly marginal returns whenever there are returns and not simply outright negatives and theft sponsored by the US Attorney General!

What would Jon Corzine do?
He'd probably continue to bundle while enjoying his freedom and his former client's money!

Sort of left out the greater fool theory . no matter how much one paid for an investment , there is always a greater fool willing too pay more. So the pensioneers holding out for a return of 2005 real estate prices , plus selling their "risky stocks" for a pretty penney , then dumping all the money in secure interest paying investment , got fucked ).

lol the youfs making 10 thousand a year or less are not going too give a rats ass about your 500 k home or 500 k portfolio being reduced to 5 % of less of its all time high in value. I have cash , and will not buy a fucking thing until things really start to crater . say nice real estate going for a tenth of its current price. Enough so I can make a damn nice profit renting rooms for 25 a week to your angry youfs )
