  2. The Fed as a God narrative is hardly rational. “It’s not a Ponzi Scheme If You Have a Printing Press” and the corollary that providing unlimited amounts of liquidity to markets is at worst benign, but entails no real negative consequences, are assumptions that will soon be tested

  3. Value is dead and the Fed has blood on their hands. Too much money chasing too few stocks. TINA. Business needn’t make money as long as stocks do.
