Low interest rates mess with stock prices

Here is a recent op ed that ran in a Vancouver daily. It argues that the Fed, by holding interest rates low, drive people to the stock market since the bank offers no return. This forces middle class Americans and the eldery to take risks they can’t afford. It also drives up stock prices beyond their real value thus setting companies up for a serious crash once investors see that the company isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
