Thanks for your comment. I did not mention my personal portfolio holdings in the article, however. No worries -- I've been "all in" since 2009. Best regards.

TIAA-CREF Warns That Negative Interest Rates Are Coming
4 years ago

Thanks, Gary. Of course, low interest rates are like any other form of artificial stimulation. Markets like the "buzz" at first, but then ever-larger doses (QE programs, calculating P/E ratios with "adjusted" rather than GAAP earnings, etc.) are required to maintain the high. And, like any addict, the only way to get clean is to stop using and face the pain of withdrawal (-20% to -35% bear market). Volcker was a banker, and he knew how to prescribe harsh medicine when it was required. Greenspan, Bernanke and Yellen are part academics, part government apparatchiks.
