|Snapchat's CEO Evan Spiegel points out that tech stocks are in a bubble and doomed to crash at some point in time. This is refreshing since it comes straight from a CEO of an obscenely-valued tech stock.
Mises Institute writer Ryan McMaken reports:
Spiegel said the investment bubble is being fueled by an "easy money policy" and low interest rates, which may not last a whole lot longer according to recent economic indicators. Those low interest rates are funneling investments toward stock markets, hedge funds and, yes, startups.John Hussman explains that valuations based upon interest rates are only weakly related to reality in Why Stocks are Not "Cheap Relative to Bonds":
We're near the third peak in a Fed-induced bubble in equities and wondering why the economy can't grow at its historic rate. The answer is simple: you can't create wealth out of an ink pot. That's a lesson many investors have yet to learn even after three major stock market bubbles of the last fifteen years.
