The current business cycle will always be over before the five year mark.


Really?

Seems to me like we're still stuck in the mud after five years, and looks like it might be quite some time before we see a strong economy. The Fed seems to think so, in any case. Why else would they be printing $1,000,000,000,000 a year and promising to keep interest rates near zero for years? Then again, the Fed hasn't proven itself too skilled at prediction, so anything is possible.
