Credit BUbble Bulletin from "Unwitting Beneficiary"

>Fundamentally, this Bubble’s main price distortions emanate from the market perception that synchronized global fiscal and monetary policies will sustain global financial and economic recoveries. This creates a dynamic where massive issuance of sovereign debt is generally priced in the marketplace with meager little risk premiums. Similarly, the perception that markets and economies are underpinned by government policies ensures that debt instruments throughout – certainly including U.S. corporates, municipal debt, agencies, and mortgages – trade at narrow risk spreads to sovereigns. It’s the ultimate “too big to fail.”
