As the low interest rate environment continues to grind on, financial consultant A. Gary Shilling notes that with rates unable to go any lower, investors are still hungry for yield, and after being stung so badly by the market meltdown of 2008 and 2009, they are finally willing to take higher risks to get the returns they want.
