    I said "widespread demographic involvement" ?

    Well, economically speaking that's inflation or deflation. The Fed should have no opinion on asset valuations unless they are measurably driving inflation of deflation.

    The Fed is warning about the valuations of social media and biotech stocks.

    That's silly, the Fed should should have no opinion unless there is a widespread demographic involvement.

    The AG "irrational exuberance went into the history books as brilliant policy poetry but then the property
    market asset bubble was missed and that could have been identified by the number of sub-prime mortgages issued. People that needed houses were buying houses but also people that didn't need houses were buying houses. And people were buying houses bigger than they could normally qualify for. But the idea of easily buying houses was everywhere because as many sub-prime mortgages as possible were being written. Interesting that the availability of sub-prime mortgages drove the demographic rather than the demographic driving the housing demand.

    How is widespread demographic involvement identified ? I don't know but a small percentage of former internet investors hanging on to newly available social media stocks is not it.
