It is a remarkable deja vu to behold: the Canadian stock market in June 2014 is once more within striking distance of its all time global-debt-fuelled-consumption-commodity-bubble-peak briefly seen 6 long years ago in June 2008. Four short months later, the index had lost 50% of its value by October 2008 (as it also did from its previous peak in the 2000 dot-bomb implosion). But Canada has much more going for it today than in 2007-08 right? With our top 3 world’s most expensive real estate markets, most indebted consumers ever and weakening global demand for our exports, surely this time will be different?
