In the last 2 days, bond market has declined a bit. All major news outlets published articles like these: Can We Ignore the Alarm Bells the Bond Market Is Ringing?
Such an event in bond market occurred back in ~1950 (according to the graph on that article). The stockmarket had a major dip around ~1932 due to the great depression but it has looked good since then till 2007. Overall things also bounced back in 1950, 1960, slow down in 1970 due to energy crisis and then it recovered after 1982.
I am not an economist but trying to understand how will the economy will behave when it will face a similar situation. Is it fair to compare 1950 US economy to 2016 US economy?
