The United States’ 30 year Treasury Bond is considered to be the safest, most liquid investment ever in any given universe.
Main stream thought and what has been inculcated in people’s mind is that whereas stocks represent more of a speculative approach to investing, bonds and the US Long Term Bond in particular, are for savvy prudent investors. Bonds give a safe and steady stream of income. Pension funds and insurance funds generally have a significant portion of their investment in bonds.
I ask you:
Are we about to hit the financial singularity? What happens when the long term bond’s value will have been rolled back to levels last seen at the time of the abrogation of Bretton Woods?
