I think the longest bull market in history already ended. We're in a correction right now, the first correction of the new bear market.
This idea that the US is the cleanest dirty shirt in the hamper is a bunch of nonsense. I mean the US economy is a gigantic credit bubble. Debt is at an all-time high on an individual level when you look at credit cards, student loans, auto debt... But more importantly the national debt: we're now running $100 billion per month deficit spending. We are borrowing more money now during this recovery than we did at any point during the Great Recession!
