Again, maybe right but for the wrong reason.
My take is the gold and commodity bubble is due to people (Roubini included) believing Fed policy is inherently inflationary – printing money and all that – when it’s not.
When those funds are done being committed, it can all end very badly in a deflationary tumble.
