"Rising rates will make it more difficult for people to qualify for mortgages and get homes, while a cooling economy, as a consequence of tighter monetary conditions, will limit renters’ ability to pay. As the housing market stalls, the financial system will begin to seize up, resulting in a stock market collapse and a deeper recession than in 2008."
I don't doubt that this is possible.
Where can I purchase discount tickets for this ride. With my luck ,it's already sold out.
This is what *should* happen. We've got too many entrenched players, trying to stuff people back under their pyramids so they can get those guaranteed returns like back in the old days. At the same time we've got growth sectors that are starving for capital that could be growing markets, adding jobs and building revenue!
Not to mention these entrenched players control the computer systems that tell everyone what is happening in the markets, so there is no way to determine value. It's similar to what Stalin said "It's not the people who vote that count, but the people who count the votes".
