I have regularly written about the many shortcomings of human psychology when it comes to investing. The emotions of "greed" and "fear" are the predominant drivers of not only investor behavior over time but also the development and delivery of the financial products that they use. As markets rise and fall investors consume products and services accordingly. During strongly rising markets the demand for "risk" related products rise.

This stock market bubble could pop in the next 1-2 years once interest rates start to move up (or the China bubble pop is heard around the world, that event could even come sooner...)
