I think it is going to have to because we have to have higher interest rates, there is no question that we cannot keep artificially suppressed interest rates or the U.S. Dollar is going to collapse, we are going to have runaway inflation, we are going to have to do something or we are not going to have real capital investment unless we have genuine savings. And no one is going to save when interest rates are zero or negative.
We are going to have to raise interest rates but then when interest rates go up it will be impossible to service the debt. Forget about repaying it. We cannot even pay the interest. (iShares Barclays 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT), ProShares UltraShort Lehman 20+ Year ETF (TBT), U.S. Treasuries)
