He questions if the central banks are digging a deeper and more confining hole of “permanently high levels of debt, forcing central banks to continue being lenient.” He sees the calm in the credit market as “stupefying … legitimately terrifying” and likens it to the summer of 2007 just before the credit crisis erupted. While reading this analysis, we were reminded of John Mauldin’s reference to a Brookhaven National Laboratories study of sandpiles and their limitations.
