Bubble Watch: Still More Warnings

by: Private Sector Development

A few days ago I offered a series of bubble warnings from a German financial pundit, two academics, the man who broke the Bank of England, and the man who built Singapore. Yesterday, we had a warning from the world's largest bond fund.

Free Exchange links to a discussion (via Buttonwood) about asset inflation, led by Pimco's Bill Gross.

Bottom line:

Cumulatively, asset values have risen twice as fast as GDP over the 50 year period. As Gross writes "you would have been far better off investing in paper than factories or machinery or the requisite components of an educated workforce."

Nuff said.
