Impossible returns create bubbles?

Pension funds chasing highest returns on investment force behind recession

Investors are creating asset bubbles as they move around the globe. Earlier this year there were worries about a commodities bubble. Now a bubble in bonds is ready to burst. Property is also on the way back. In the early 1990s it took property prices six years to begin growing again after the recession and 10 years to recover their losses. This time they declined for 18 months at most and in London are racing back to bubble-like levels, despite this recession being the worst for 60 years.

    Very interesting article, and a somewhat different perspective. I suppose, though, that the conclusion that greed is at the heart of the matter is obvious. The solution still remains in regulating the consequences of this greed, which may prove difficult as the power lies within the hands of the beneficiaries – the greedy. Fodder for the boomer/buster argument.
