There is not enough stress in these tests because they don`t test what is really going to go on. Nobody tests a weak economy and a big spike in interest rates at the same time. The Federal Reserve always assumes that if the economy is weak, interest rates are going to be low and the only way they assume rate hikes is if its a vibrant economy which lifts asset values and makes it easier for people to repay their debts. But they don`t have a stress test that stresses a big drop in the stock market and the real estate market and in the bond market. That we have a repeat of the stagflation of the 1970`s. That is what I think its coming, except even worse than in the 1970`s.
