Interesting analysis by the CBO …
Punch line: When you delate the numbers, i.e. take out inflation effects – household net worth is roughly 5 times disposable income … that’s down from the dot-com and housing booms & busts, but roughly at historical levels.
In other words, the market bubbles were more like sugar-rush outliers … than “new normals”.
