Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The US is in a liquidity trap. There is no shortage of capital or lending capacity, but there is a shortage of  borrowers who are both creditworthy and willing. In such a situation those with cash know that others with cash will be putting money into the stock market, so they do also. This works until it doesn't.
