Buyers and Sellers 31 To see the damage a widening risk premium can do, consider a mutual fund that has just taken in $10 million from new shareholders. This fund invests in common stocks. The fund manager has, until now, bought stocks that are slightly riskier than the ones that are already in the fund's portfolio. This way, the fund positions itself more and more aggressively to profit from the rising prices of riskier stocks. In view of the widening risk premium, however, the fund manager cannot do that with the $10 million that has just arrived.

The fund manager has to buy stocks that are safer than the ones that are already in the fund's portfolio. The fund manager has to start scaling back the fund's risk exposure, because if he or she takes more risk than other fund managers do, and the risk premium continues to widen, the risky stocks would go down, and the fund would underperform. So the fund manager stops buying riskier securities. Their prices fall as buyers back away, and the risk premium widens more. This sort of aversion to risk is contagious, so any widening in the risk premium can lead to further widening.

Middle-class savers used to put their money into savings accounts at banks. Now they no longer do so. Instead, they put their savings into mutual funds and pension funds. Savers also buy stocks and bonds directly, and they do so in much greater numbers than they used to. They now feel confident enough to buy stocks and bonds, when previously only the intrepid and the wealthy did so. The recent performance of stocks and bonds has justified their confidence. If their confidence continues, and if the buying power they can muster is sufficient, the dollar value of financial assets can keep rising, and can keep revalidating their confidence.
