“Equities are for losers and bond markets for winners. Equities are simply for people who like losing money,” Griffiths said.
“A double-dip is inevitable and imminent, as Keynesian stimulus measures have never worked anywhere. We are in the equivalent of a Great Depression following 3 years of credit crisis,” he added.
