Global 'Wealth' Destruction - World Market Cap Plunges $13 Trillion To 2 Year Lows

Since the start of June, global equity markets have lost over $13 trillion.

(The last time global market dropped this much - Bernanke unleashed QE2)

World market capitalization has fallen back below $60 trillion for the first time since February 2014 as it appears the world's central planners' print-or-die policy to create wealth (and in some magical thinking - economic growth) has failed - and failed dramatically.

 

To rub more salt in the wounds of monetray policy mumbo-jumbo, despite endless rate cuts and balance sheet expansion around the world, the last 4 months have seen an 18% collapse - the largest since Lehman.

It appears "Wealth" creation is just as transitory as The Fed thinks every other outlier is.
