The Rationale Behind Negative Rates

Over $5.5 trillion in bonds are trading with negative yields. The media will tell you a dozen reason as to why Ireland, and for the love of God, Italy deserve to trade with negative yields; but none of them can see the forest through the trees like I can.

Seema Moody tries to make sense of it, but fails to grasp what it truly taking place here.

It’s the end of the world, mates.

Might I introduce you to a Mr. Devil Dog to explain the current situation we find ourselves in?

        I don’t know about a cliff, but there’s ZeroLedge over there. I think Devil Dog works there.

        Satire by intent…but I find myself agreeing with all-too-many of the “satirical” predictions. The United Steaks of America will eat rice and beans, and that with zest!
