The frenzy will start again. The banks will lend and those who got bitten last time will look to make good their losses in the next bubble. Some will no doubt.

In the meantime

It all seems so predictable there seems to be no point in investing in anything else. It seems a cast iron certainty to make money.

Just pile in.

(this is not investment advice - just in case)
