Head Of World's Largest Asset Manager Says Taper "Imperative" To End "Bubble-Like Markets"

Tyler Durden's picture

JPMorgan, Pimco, and now BlackRock, the world's largest asset manager, all join the bubble warning chorus. From Bloomberg:


So... when the three largest banks/asset managers in the US say that Ben Bernanke has blown the largest asset bubble in history and that the time to taper has come, will Janet Yellen once again turn a blind ear to warnings that come not just from the "tinfoil" blogosphere but the "respected" legacy financial institutions made up of serious people, and after the cataclysm admit that, just like last time, she "never saw it coming?"

The Fed will never taper, quite the opposite. All hail Mr. Yellen.

Yes, somewhere in his remarks you know the Fink is talking his (big) book.  Beware.

Yellen has not even started her tenure.... why all the hate for the nascent bull market ?  We are just getting started.

Taper?  Now that's funny!

ES is up (again) 0.30% mid day on no news, and well on the way to another all-time high.

Why would we want them to taper?  What's the harm in a little extra fiat floating around for the corporations and politicians to play with?

And of course all this explains perfectly the rise yet again n the Dow & S&P and the take downs n the phony paper prices n the only 2 forms of real money.....AGAIN!!!

The END will come. How will we have the end? Taper now and we face an enormous crisis of undermined size. No taper will guarantee a crisis to end any potential future for our society. Pick your poison.

Next QE monthly dosage under BernYellen: 170 billion USD

If 85 billion USD monthly in Bernankbux is good, 2x that under Mrs. Debtfire is MOAR BETTER-ER!

Fink is a cunt and just another enemy of the American people.  He'll jet off to his second passport issuer when things go south here.

Or that it's so fucking obvious that the FED has blown a massive bubble yet again, that it can no longer be ignored even by the politically connected elites...


Maybe they're all getting into the "Peter Schiff was right" bandwagon, when this clusterfuck explodes...


Things are so bad, they cannot be ignored much longer...

We need more QE to maintain the welfare mentality that has permeated through society; corporate, common, and otherwise. Forward citizens.

remind me again who calls the shots at the fed?  Cause i'm pretty damn sure it ain't bernake or yellen

Re:  Cause i'm pretty damn sure it ain't bernake or yellen 


There's only two choices (?)

1)  Ben and Jannet (and Alan) are tools of the masterminds of a world-wide conspiracy.
2)  Economics is just another religion with duplicitous sociopaths and true-believing dumbasses, like every other religion that has ever existed.

Re:  this game has been played too many times for no. 2 to be correct....

Somebody famous said:  There's a sucker born every minute.   That's what religion is for, to create bullshit for the dumbasses while the smart-n-savvy live their duplicitous lives and eat the dumbasses alive.   It's call survival of the fittest.

john39's picture

its all a matter of perspective...  if you believe this existence is nothing more than material in nature, why not...  but if you think there is something a little more complicated going on behind the scenes, then focus exclusively on the material could have rather bad consequences.  sadly, no easy answers.  choose wisely.

Fattest merchant bankers.

Mrmojorisin515's picture

nah dude, its door number 3.  The banks own the central banks, which the fed is the most powerful at the moment. 

Mrmojorisin515's picture

It must not be felt that these heads of the world's chief central banks were themselves 

substantive powers in world finance. They were not. Rather, they were the technicians 

and agents of the dominant investment bankers of their own countries, who had raised 

them up and were perfectly capable of throwing them down. The substantive financial 

powers of the world were in the hands of these investment bankers (also called 

"international" or "merchant" bankers) who remained largely behind the scenes in their 

own unincorporated private banks. These formed a system of international cooperation 

and national dominance which was more private, more powerful, and more secret than 

that of their agents in the central banks. This dominance of investment bankers was based 

on their control over the flows of credit and investment funds in their own countries and 

throughout the world. They could dominate the financial and industrial systems of their 

own countries by their influence over the flow of current funds through bank loans, the 

discount rate, and the re-discounting of commercial debts; they could dominate 

governments by their control over current government loans and the play of the 

international exchanges. Almost all of this power was exercised by the personal influence 

and prestige of men who had demonstrated their ability in the past to bring off successful 

financial coupe, to keep their word, to remain cool in a crisis, and to share their winning 

opportunities with their associates. In this system the Rothschilds had been preeminent 

during much of the nineteenth century, but, at the end of that century, they were being 

replaced by J. P. Morgan whose central office was in New York, although it was always 

operated as if it were in London (where it had, indeed, originated as George Peabody and 

Company in 1838). Old J. P. Morgan died in 1913, but was succeeded by his son of the 

same name (who had been trained in the London branch until 1901), while the chief 

decisions in the firm were increasingly made by Thomas W. Lamont after 1924. But 

these relationships can be described better on a national basis later. At the present stage 

we must follow the efforts of the central bankers to compel the world to return to the gold 

standard of 1914 in the postwar conditions following 1918.

Re: dominant investment bankers

Yes indeed,  I forgot about door #3.   The "dominant alpha male assholes".  

Humans:  the least stupid animal on the planet.

All REAL economists know that there is no such thing as a bubble because all participants in the markets are rational actors and all the information is known.

It is so written, so must be true, Amen!

I'm no psychic, but I think I can safely predict that when the SHTF, CNBC will claim No ONE saw this coming.  They really should have Shiff on again, so they can laugh at him.

If he doesn't then you have to do likewise for me.
