Bernanke's goal from the outset (and he has even admitted this) has been to create another asset bubble to get us out of the hole created by the last bubble he created. Mission accomplished. Now, the real question is, is that really a good idea? He doesn't have to answer that, he will be well out of office by the time the repercussions hit us, or more accurately, our kids. We are seeing one of the greatest transfers of wealth in history, from the bottom to the top, and when this one pops, it will have major consequences.
I will have the new highs update shortly.
