    Silent Spring: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silent_Spring. I watched two one-hour TV programs one on the threat of bees becoming extinct, and the other on the use of pesticides and mechanised farming that makes the soil barren. What has this got to do with neoliberalism? the hunt for profits is turning agriculture into a deeply exploitative agrobusiness.

    There was very little soil, a yellow dust, more likely, that could easily blow away. Carrots had been grown here, harvested, ingeniously, mechanically, all the same size and length. Very efficient...The equipment used was also hi-tech. Carrots grow in sandy soil, look like this...http://www.almanac.com/plant/carrots.

    There is no desire from banks to raise interest rates, and this after several years of zero or below zero interest rates. See the above link to mises, published today.

    Signs of growing bubble from Mises and Acting Man:

    "You do not need to be a financial market wizard to see that especially bond markets have reached bubble territory: bond prices have become artificially inflated by central banks' unprecedented monetary policies. For instance, the price-earnings-ratio for the US 10-year Treasury yield stands around 44, while the equivalent for the euro zone trades at 85. In other words, the investor has to wait 44 years (and 85 years, respectively) to recover the bonds' purchasing price through coupon payments."

    and from Acting Man:

    I agree with the Mises group about bonds. I expect interest rates will rise and then refinancing for governments and corporations will become more difficult.

    Yes, that is my conclusion, too.

    We have now had a decade when interest rates are held down by U.S. state intervention. But sooner or later a market correction will take place.
