Hi, I'm Karen Wallace for Morningstar. Sharp losses and volatility in the bond market have a lot of investors wondering if we're living through 2008 all over again. I'm here with Eric Jacobson. He's a senior analyst covering fixed-income strategies on our manager research group with some thoughts on that. Eric, thanks for being here.
