Most people would agree that the bond market is expensive. But is it in a bubble? Alan Greenspan thinks so. So will this bubble be popping anytime soon? Bloomberg’s Jonathan Ferro explains.

  1. Inflation is low? I thought it was pretty high already lots of stuff keep getting more expensive each year (like College Education). These want super high inflation like Venezuela or something?

  2. He may be right, but I have no respect for Greenspan's opinion, his low rates in the 2000's is one of the main reasons for the 2008 housing crisis. Then he just bailed and handed the bag to Bernanke. These central bankers have no idea what they're doing.

  3. Bloomberg copied the Tulip Crash from the Netflix film “Boom to Bust”. The evidence that this material is plagiarized is that you FUCKING IDIOTS forgot that GREENSPAN singlehandedly caused the 2008 meltdown and expect that the public is stupid enough to value anything he says.

  4. HOW CAN YOU BE SO FUCKING BRAINDEAD? ALAN GREENSPAN SAID BEFORE THE 08 CRASH THAT REGULATIONS ARE NOT NECESSARY AND YOU TAKE HIS ADVICE? WTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

  5. Except the presenter explained nothing; no technical analysis was brought to bear, no reasoning, nothing. Money and therefor bonds have ZERO intrinsic value. This does not mean they're worth nothing and that's a very important distinction. Moreover, bonds are not expensive when inflation is so low
