The post below is a guest contribution by Marty Weiner of Comstock Partners, the highly regarded investment manager run by Charles Minter.

Here is the opening paragraph:

“Ever since the U.S. financial crisis in 2008 there have been many comparisons to Japan and their “lost decade.”  Most comparisons mark the start of each financial crisis as the end of 1989 for Japan and 2007 for the U.S.  We believe each deserves some clarification: Not only does the lost decade need to be pluralized, but the U.S. financial crisis is more appropriately dated  to 2000, when we entered our secular deflationary bear market in the wake of the bursting of the dot-com bubble.”
