a much slower death. Both ways we die. When the market crashes then the bond market will rally big time as it will be seen as the last safe haven. It is a no win situatation.
Not when they see the higher the debt the less chance they will not get a haircut. Than cash (physical) is the safest place because in can be used for everyday expense with no hassle.
I only invest for the long term. In the long term we are all dead.
Doesn't seem to work that way. Rather, when people see support leaving, they sell everything: stocks, bonds and gold.
