Buying A 30-Year Treasury At A 4% Yield Is A Sucker`s Bet

“I couldn’t understand why people were buying subprime mortgages. I couldn’t understand why people were buying dot-com stocks that had no revenues, let alone earnings. People do a lot of foolish things, until they stop. And eventually a light bulb is going to go off in somebody’s head and they’re going to realize that we can’t pay our bills.
