But Europe has been invaded by the bizarro legion.
Case in point. Both Germany and Denmark have negative sovereign yields out to 20 years. Germany, which has issued longer maturity sovereign debt, has slightly positive yields beyond 20 years.

Yes, the monetary Bizarro legion has invaded earth (or at least Japan and Europe). And the US monetary policy has been bizarro since Alan Greenspan.
