So is there some reason why the peaks occured late June 2009, late December 2009, late June 2010?

Is this when leasing decisions need to be made so the suppliers jack up rates knowing when the buyers are caught in a crunch?

I've nurtured a similar long standing theory that oil prices move the same way, up just before long term contracts are signed/renewed, back down afterward. There can be a "conspiracy" among producers without a single word being exchanged between any of them. Since they all work in the same field, attend the same conferences, the executives and other personel move between the various companies, it's not surprising they would act in concert without overt collusion.

Markets always over shoot the mark, on the upside as well as the downside.

Our focus is to preserve wealth by controlling our exposure to risk assets...

Great, bigger downside risk in this environment than upside.  No news to this choir. So what is your favorite store of value then? What asset isn't a risk asset these days?  $Cash is king I guess.

Another prominent plug for that Reinhart/Rogoff book I see.  Gonna have to check that out.  I like the sweeping historical analysis stuff.

Kind of funny - if you read this off the Excelsia site the B-berg screenshots are a bit bigger and you can see Dick Mayo (GMO founder) shooting him a message.
