Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    The ‘Corporate Debt (OAS)’ figure is misleading at best, certainly poorly titled. Any graphic showing the option-adjusted spread on investment grade corporate debt is obviously going to have a downward trend when interest rates are artificially low. A graphic showing the trend of corporate debt issuance and/or debt levels would be better suited for the title of corporate debt. A better title for this figure would be ‘Corporate Credit Spreads (OAS)’.
