When questioning the presence of an asset class bubble, he suggests investors consider politics.

"Are we seeing the government distort behavior because of tax policies, incentives, ceilings, price floors or subsidies of any sort? And, are we getting moral hazard in the sense that they will protect you if you are failing?" says Mansharamani.
