Where does all the dough go?

As the US bond market struggles to find a bid, it's time to ask where does all that money go once it has fled from the risk free asset known as US Treasuries. Conventional thought would say yield chasers find their way into various other bonds (i.e safer sovereign debt or US corporates) and/or dividend yielding equities.

But, what if unconventional is the way to go? What if that income producing capital finds its way into assets that do not produce any income, assets necessary for daily life such as oil and foods? Oh, and lets not forget gold and silver.
