Marc Faber’s View on Bonds

By on May 31, 2008

It was recently reported (about a week ago) that Marc Faber believes U. S. bonds could well prove to be currently the worst value as a major asset class in 30 years. His view was that they pay a miserable return in a devaluing currency and are highly vulnerable to capital value erosion through inflation.

    unfortunately marc faber is wrong. the 30 year bond may fall to 5% return briefly but euroland and asia will crash and burn as the importer of last resort leaves there goods to rot on the docks.then bonds and the dollar will rally as the rest of world goes down the same toilet. where would you put your money when the merde hits the fan in the us or with socialists communists and thieves.

    Good observation, but I think you mean the 30 year may RISE to 5%. There does not appear to be a chance of the rest of the world de-coupling from the U.S. as the housing bubble was prevalent in most of the world’s most important economies.
