A Federal Reserve governor is publicly raising concerns about a bond bubble, and he thinks banks could take a big hit.

Bank chief executives have spent the past few months telling investors not to worry about rising interest rates. Most have said their banks are not taking risks in the bond market and are protected from losses.

One Federal Reserve governor doesn’t agree. On Thursday, governor Jeremy Stein became the latest high profile person to publicly worry about what a bond bubble could do to the financial sector and the economy. In a speech at a symposium in St. Louis, Stein talked about how or if the Fed should respond.

This wednesday: Max & Stacy celebrate
10 year anniversary of day they met.

    Many congrats to Max and Stacy. You two interface so well on the show.

    Stacy, I can see it is a bit of a challenge to successfully ‘manage’ Max, lol, but you do an outstanding job of it. And it is worth the effort as Max is absolutely brilliant! and that is not to denegrate your own intellect which is hugely high also. So betwix the two of you, we viewers get a real gem of info and insight everytime!

    by the way am i correct in assuming that betting on british bonds at the same price as three hundred years ago if effectively assuming that the british economy will expand at the same rate as it did at the beginning of the industrial revolution?

    Did Max save Stacy or did Stacy save Max? Or perhaps it is more like the Classic Comedies and what we have here is not a story of redemption but unmasking true love. A contingent universe is frustratingly wonderful but the odds of anything miraculous happening are disgustingly abysmal. Yet the point is anything can happen and so you have Max meeting Stacy. In a rigged world we need more miracles.

    That’s amazing
    Not that a Feral Reserve Governor is ratting on his Bankster buddies but a member of Banker Jewry is ratting on his other Banker Jewry buddies. Isn’t this a crime against Jewry or is this just a false flag to make it look like not all Banksters are Jewry.

    Lucky Stacey didn’t get away.
    13 is lucky for some!
