Asset Inflation

Due to continous money supply by central banks across major economies, asset prices have reached a point where it looks scary to justify this hightened exhuberance among so called value investors. This continous and extremely fast rise in asset prices is creating an asset bubble, which no body wants to burst, but still fears. The common casualty is layman person, or what economist love to term as Consumer, which bears the brunt of this artificial asset inflation and gets credit at high interest rates to buy that asset! This can't go on for ever, something might topple this top heavy giant from the cliff, what would that be, only time will tell.
