    It's not because of money coming in. It's from lack of money going out.

    i am sure when janet yellen gets her job, she will do her best to keep interest rates low.......
    Interest rates on US debt are nearly entirely in fixed form, meaning that a shift in short term interest rates would not apply to the cumulative US debt but rather the deficits incurred in the short term future. Not nearly as catastrophic a scenario as some would have you believe.

    The decline started in 1980. Irreversible. The con game that we've played with our fiat currency is drawing to a close.

    i do know interest rise and fall, and interest will not stay where it is forever, it will rise sooner of later.

    I've never seen it do anything but march relentlessly upward! Good to know reverse gear works, too!

    Good evening, AP! I've missed your posts, hope you and yours are well!

    It may have started then but it is coming to a head now and I believe we are in our final days. I'm actually glad that I'm old and have most of my life in while things were pretty good.
