Eventually, once all of the “safer” assets are gone, the search for yield leads all of this hot money to much more dangerous assets. This is how bubbles are formed, and the foundations for their popping are laid.

Central banks are great at forcing down risk premia, while doing nearly nothing to mitigate the underlying risks.
