Interest Rates: Damned If They Do, Damned If They Don`t

We are damned if they do raise rates and damned if they don`t. If they do raise interest rates they prick the bubble that they have inflated. Because we have so much debt, the only reason the bubble has not already bursted is because rates are still at zero. So, if they move them back up to 2 or 3 percent, which is still historically very low, given how much debt we have, it is impossible to sustain it.
