Treasuries Fall as BlackRock Expects Losses for Long-Dated Debt

Japanese debt rallied after an auction of five-year notes, with the yield on the nation’s 30-year securities dropping to an unprecedented 0.335 percent.

1.00335^30 = 1.1055

Assuming you will live another 30 years, I can't think of an easier way to guarantee a 10.55% return.

What? You wanted to earn it in just one year? Hahaha! Do I look like a miracle worker?

Strong global economy pushing yields into the stratosphere, baby. That's what I'm talking about, lol. Sigh.

France has issued a 50 year bond, Ireland a hundred year bond. Hell, the Irish Republic isn't even a hundred years old.

Yes, to infinity and beyond according to the likes of Peter Schiff and Ron Paul.

Borrowing (aka indebting) our way to prosperity! Not gonna happen, at least with private debt. Not that anybody in the msm questions the paradigm.

What evs. That could never happen here.

M3 US vs Japan.

Ours has tripled since 1995 while Japan's is up 30% since then.

I don't pretend to understand what's going on anymore.


I just glance at those every quarter and nod my head.

For what it is worth, bought 4 large paper bags filled with groceries last night for $39 total (using coupons and sale prices).

It would seem hyperinflation and higher yield theories are being poned again. Go figure.

Today I bought two racks of baby back pork ribs - buy one get one free! $4/lb!

Economics is a religion posing as a science.

Nice! We should do dinner. I'll bring the 99 cent per pound tomatoes on the vine!

(The sale is officially over so it's really a $3 "value" now. ;))
