But back to the NYT chart:
Docking station from Star Trek.Market watchers are always talking about a “flight to safety” when the going gets tough. Given the rumblings about the credit risk of the United States (Treasuries were risk-free assets when I went to school, which was a long time ago), there now appears to be no safe investment.
Perhaps the NYT artist has consciously or unconsciously conveyed a meta-truth: the only way to fly to safety from financial collapse, volcanic ash clouds, car bombs, and oil slicks is to slip the surly bonds of earth.
