Here Is What Janet Yellen Answered When Asked If The U.S. Is In An "Economic Bubble"





"...we tried carefully to look at evidence of potential financial instability that might be brewing and some of the hallmarks of that, clearly overvalued asset prices, high leverage, rising leverage, and rapid credit growth.
