What's the biggest and most dangerous financial bubble? Sovereign debt issued by profligate governments. And unlike stocks or corporate debt, government bond bubbles harm millions of ordinary people when they burst.

Economist Daniel Lacalle joins Jeff Deist to figure out the bizarro world of the bond bubble: negative interest rates, anemic rate spreads between government bonds and "high yield" bonds, and central banks as the unseemly buyers of last resort.
