Two Teaser Quotes

In response to a question about the end of the 40-year bull market in bonds, Booth replied:

I don’t do hyperbole at all, but if this really is the end, and we really are going to see real rates rise appreciably, then you are talking about a global depression.

Later in the interview, Booth commented “If you want a front row seat with popcorn, follow the EM [emerging market] space.”
