Interest Rates are too Low in America



"One of the problems we have in America is that interest rates are too low. We don’t save enough, we spend too much, we borrow too much, we don’t produce enough. So we have these huge external imbalances where we borrow from the rest of the world. We have to import goods, because we don’t invest in productivity.

We are not producing the goods. But all this is done to try to maintain the illusion of health, so Americans can keep on spending. So politicians can actually pretend the economy is getting better. But all we are doing is actually covering up the symptoms. Beneath the surface, the economy is actually deteriorating. Eventually it’s going to collapse." - in The Epoch Times
