The financial crisis upended a lot of things about the established order. But that was then, and now it seems investors single-minded focus on bonds is abating, The Atlantic reports.

Why? Pretty simple really. In general people like buying things that go up in price. And bonds have been falling, as the market worries that the Federal Reserve is going to ease up on its bond-buying programs. (Quick reminder, in bond land, prices and yields move in opposite directions. So the sharp move higher in yields on say the 10-year Treasury note, translates in to sharp price declines.)
