How Low Can They Go?

Most analysts agree that today's low interest rates are due, in large part, to the Great Recession. That economic decline, and the subsequent lackluster recovery, reduced the demand (and thus the price) for borrowed funds. More recently, money flowing into U.S. Treasuries from distressed economies and currency regimes, like Europe, has pushed prices up and yields down even further.
