One takeaway from the Bubbles article: there's been an astonishing amount of fear-inducing "bubble" talk in the investment media over the past several years (since the real estate bubble ironically), and it's done nothing but scare people away from many years' worth of truly attractive stock market investment opportunities. Never take counsel of your fears!
