About a year ago at a conference Janet Yellen said, “I don’t think economic expansions just die of old age."

Ben Bernanke replied, “I like to say they get murdered.”

More like deficit spending, QE's, low interest rates, along with low inflation.

The only actual helicopter money that I can recall was the Bush2 tax rebate 2008.

Is this fueling a super-correction......or does this speak to a new-normal, government using any and all means to stop any significant and sustained financial-correction????

I'd say new normal. And not just Gov't, also the the Fed. Things are different since 2008.

An economist spoke at a commercial real estate event recently, and pointed out that while the DURATION of the expansion has been long, the SIZE of the expansion hasn't been...it ranked fifth out of ten expansions on his chart.

That’s kind of the point right? Stability.

If the expansion was rapid and large, it would be much more likely to fall off just as spectacularly.

It’s hard to have both.



We’ll see how this new era of even more central bank power than ever goes.
