Why Bond Markets are So Mean

A keeper of a quote on the source of global bond markets’ meanness:

What gives the bond markets their ruthless character is … the ruthless determination of millions of middle class retirees to buy a cottage in the country, a Labrador and globetrot like grey nomads the archaeological wonders of the world.
