Here comes that lost decade, albeit three years tardy…
At the ING Valuation Conference in Amsterdam: Inflation + Deflation = Stagflation
That visual relationship is corroborated by running the statistical correlations…
The relationship is obvious and evident! In addition, we have been in a Goldilocks fantasy land for both interest rates and CRE for about 30 years. CRE culminated in the 2007 bubble pop, but was reblown by .gov policies and machinations. The same with rates. Ever hear of NEGATIVE interest rates where YOU have to PAY someone to LEND THEM MONEY!!!
So, BoomBustBloggers, where do YOU think rates are going to go from here? Up of Down???
