    The policy of creating trillions in new currency and buying trillions in assets has inflated an 'Everything' Bubble — a bubble in all the asset classes being supported or purchased by central banks and their proxies.

    Many observers wonder: What, if anything, can pop this?

    In an age which seems abundantly well-served by individualism, consumerism, the central state and global corporations, why does this erosion of community matter? After all, aren’t we doing rather splendidly despite a declining sense of community?
