    ZIRP is doing it! It is not the "savings" of the wealthy that is doing it. It is what amounts to "printing" of bank reserves.

    The money the Fed printed ended up in the 1%'s hands soon enough. The Fed bought the trillions of bonds, and government ran colossal deficits courtesy of the Fed being the extra buyer, and all these trillions were spent into the private economy and eventually hoovered up by the "savers" aka rich, people who have the generational money of interest earning interest earning interest for them.

    Interest never sleeps.

    The Feds borrowed $2T/yr during the crash! Inconceivable!

    but anyone who thinks we have 3 simultaneous massive bubbles

    I don't see much of a bubble in stocks, unless you think corporate profits are going to zero again.

    Rents support housing costs, so no bubble there.

    Not even sure what a bubble looks like in the bond market . . .

    Prices high so yields low? Well, welcome to teh deflation, courtesy of the Fed injecting trillions into the top of the economy to fend away cross-default collapse.

    I don't belong to the Fed cult so we will disagree on this one too. The Fed controls exactly 1 rate which is almost never used.

    What the Fed also did was stick-save asset prices and corporate profits 5-6 years ago.

    Without that we'd be in 1936 now and asset value would be 10% of what they are now, everyone would be BK'd and overall the rich would own less in some areas (their debt and corporate equities) and more in others (real estate and other hard assets).
