Bubbles seem to have been created if there’s too much supply. We all know that there’s been a huge amount of fiat money printed out-of-the-thin air everywhere in the world and pumped into the global financial system since. Amazingly these currency bubbles are yet to bust.

There may be lots of bubbles in the future in the world economy, but not now and not after the fiat currency bubbles bust.

the purchase isn’t levered, but who’s to say the purchaser isn’t?

Might that not be some kind of sign that the currency at least is in a bubble?
