Credit in the U.S. ($56T and counting) is a supernova star, says Bill Gross - its expansion produces less and less heat and ultimately causes the star to consume itself. In the 1980's, it took $4 of new credit to create another $1 of GDP; over the last decade it's taken $10, and since 2006, $20. The comparison ends there, says Gross, as inflation rather than implosion lies ahead. Shorten duration, buy TIPs, look offshore for positive real rates of return.
