Peter Thiel Warns Of "Government Bubble Of Massive Size"

Marc Faber warned last week that central-bank-funded deficits were creating bigger and bigger governments which implicitly reduce the dynamism of the economy and slow growth. Today, it was billionaire venture capitalist Peter Thiel's turn to make the anchors on business media squirm a little in his unleashed truthiness. Having predicted the current surge in volatility just weeks ago (due to the end of QE), Thiel believes "the thing that is most distorted is the bond market and fixed income, and perhaps less on the equity side," but, he warned, "we certainly are back on a government bubble of massive size," and as Faber notes, that means slower growth as Thiel notes, with regard Tech investing "investors always overrate growth."
