There Is Liquidity Floating Everywhere
If anybody is being artificially inflated right now, it is the United
States. But its not just the United States, it is everybody. Everybody
has low interest rates. This is the first time in recorded history we
have had every major central bank printing huge amounts of money trying
to debase their currency.
So, what we have is an artificial, a huge artificial ocean of liquidity
floating around the world. Yes, some of it floated into Asia, a lot has
floated into the United States. I mean, it is amazing that stocks in the
United States are near all time highs even though economic conditions
certainly aren`t as good as they should be at an all time high. But that
is because of this artificial ocean of liquidity floating everywhere.
