Top Interest Rates Quotes

Interest Rates Quotes By Lloyd Blankfein

At the end of the day, it's not a normal condition to have interest rates at zero. — Lloyd Blankfein

Interest Rates Quotes By Anonymous

If the interest rate the country pays on its debt is higher than the growth of nominal GDP (that's real GDP plus inflation) that debt ratio automatically goes up - unless the government runs a surplus in the budget excluding interest. Conversely, when the interest rate a country pays on its debt is below its growth rate, the ratio automatically drops, unless there's a deficit in the budget, excluding interest. The latter scenario - having interest rates below the growth rate - is like having the wind at your back. And that's the situation Spain, Ireland and Portugal should all be in this year. Italy is close. — Anonymous

Interest Rates Quotes By Ian Macfarlane

For equity markets, the combination of low interest rates, strong economic growth and low inflation has proved very beneficial, with global share markets rising solidly in each of the past three years. This has been underpinned by strong growth in profits so that, notwithstanding the rise in share prices, P/E ratios have been declining on average. — Ian Macfarlane

Interest Rates Quotes By Ben Bernanke

Achieving price stability is not only important in itself, it is also central to attaining the Federal Reserve's other mandate objectives of maximum sustainable employment and moderate long-term interest rates. — Ben Bernanke

Interest Rates Quotes By Robert A. Heinlein

He became convinced that ordinary commercial financing could be done for a service charge plus an insurance fee amounting to much less that the current rates of interest charged by banks, whose rates were based on supply and demand, treating money as a commodity rather than as a sovereign state's means of exchange. — Robert A. Heinlein

Interest Rates Quotes By Mark Zandi

The Obama administration deserves credit for quickly ending the housing free fall. In particular, Obama empowered the Federal Housing Administration to ensure that households could find mortgages at low interest rates even during the worst phase of the financial panic. — Mark Zandi

Interest Rates Quotes By James Grant

Central banks have gotten out of the central banking business and into the central planning business, meaning that they are devoted to raising up-if they can-economic growth and employment through the dubious means of suppressing interest rates and printing money. The nice thing about gold is that you can't print it. — James Grant

Interest Rates Quotes By William J. Clinton

You know what higher interest rates mean. To you it means a higher mortgage payment, a higher car payment, a higher credit card payment. To our economy it means businesspeople will not borrow as much money, invest as much money, create as many new jobs, create as much wealth, raise as many raises. — William J. Clinton

Interest Rates Quotes By Alex Berenson

Business cycles lengthened greatly during the 20th century, as central banks learned to manage national economies by raising and lowering interest rates. — Alex Berenson

Interest Rates Quotes By Benjamin Graham

The investor should be aware that even though safety of its principal and interest may be unquestioned, a long term bond could vary widely in market price in response to changes in interest rates. — Benjamin Graham

Interest Rates Quotes By Peer Steinbruck

Greece will not manage to get back on its feet without restructuring its debt. There is no way around it. The country's creditors will have to reduce a portion of its debts by extending maturity dates, lowering interest rates or giving them what's called a 'haircut' in financial jargon. — Peer Steinbruck

Interest Rates Quotes By Noel Whittaker

Life is full of uncertainties. Future investment earnings and interest and inflation rates are not known to anybody. However, I can guarantee you one thing.. those who put an investment program in place will have a lot more money when they come to retire than those who never get around to it. — Noel Whittaker

Interest Rates Quotes By Wilhelm Ropke

It is impossible indeed not to look with considerable uneasiness at the type of the "modern economist" as he developed after Keynes' revolutionary book, whom Keynes himself regarded with alarm at the end of his days. It is the type of man who is obsessed by one thing, i.e. "effective demand," which he thinks must be kept up at whatever cost,
while he forgets the working of the mechanism of prices, wages, interest and exchange rates. — Wilhelm Ropke

Interest Rates Quotes By Greg Ip

Low interest rates are usually attributed to low inflation, weak economic growth and super easy monetary policy. But there's another deep-seated factor that doesn't get much attention: demographics. — Greg Ip

Interest Rates Quotes By Akira Mori

Today the strategies of many companies in the real estate industry are premised on low interest rates, an assumption that has resulted in the rapid expansion of the real estate securitization business. This trend could be regarded as a risk factor, as it exposes the real estate sector to at least three potential problems: first, interest rate hikes; second, revisions to securitization business accounting standards; and third, overheating in the real estate market. — Akira Mori

Interest Rates Quotes By Warren Buffett

Intrinsic value can be defined simply: It is the discounted value of the cash that can be taken out of a business during its remaining life. The calculation of intrinsic value, though, is not so simple. As our definition suggests, intrinsic value is an estimate rather than a precise figure, and it is additionally an estimate that must be changed if interest rates move or forecasts of future cash flows are revised. — Warren Buffett

Interest Rates Quotes By Barack Obama

What we also have to recognize is that the deficit levels that I'm inheriting, over a trillion dollars, coming out of last year, that that is unsustainable. At a certain point, other countries stop buying our debt, at a certain point, we'd end up having to raise interest rates, and it would end up creating more economic chaos and potentially inflation. — Barack Obama

Interest Rates Quotes By Gordon Brown

Britain was set to repeat the boom-bust cycle that led to 15 per cent. interest rates for one whole year in the early 1990s. — Gordon Brown

Interest Rates Quotes By Joseph Barbera

So the stock market could have a negative wealth effect and weigh on capital spending, but a sharp decline in long-term interest rates would be an important counterweight. — Joseph Barbera

Interest Rates Quotes By Martin Lewis

Most savings rates are based on underlying interest rates. — Martin Lewis

Interest Rates Quotes By John Manley

The fact that the bond market is rallying today is a plus. If this ends up being a bear market, it will be one of the first ever that began when interest rates are down. — John Manley

Interest Rates Quotes By Bernie Sanders

Student debt is crushing the lives of millions of Americans. How does it happen that we can get a home mortgage or purchase a car with interest rates half of that being paid for student loans? We must make higher education affordable for all. We must substantially lower interest rates on student loans. This must be a national priority. — Bernie Sanders

Interest Rates Quotes By Jimmy Fallon

Despite Russia's move to raise interest rates this week, the value of the ruble has continued to crash. Russia's economy is so bad, Edward Snowden had to put government secrets on Craigslist. — Jimmy Fallon

Interest Rates Quotes By Fareed Zakaria

Low interest rates and cheap credit also cause people to act foolishly or greedily ... — Fareed Zakaria

Interest Rates Quotes By Mario Draghi

The insurance companies do not refer to the key policy rate when they send their statements. We can only control that rate. Long-term interest rates are determined largely by global financial markets. — Mario Draghi

Interest Rates Quotes By Suze Orman

Credit card companies are jacking up interest rates, lowering credit limits, and closing accounts - and people who have made timely payments are not exempt. So even if you pay off your balance - and that's tough when interest rates are insanely high - there's a good chance your credit limit will be slashed, and that will hurt your FICO score. — Suze Orman

Interest Rates Quotes By Li Ka-shing

Sound economic fundamentals coupled with a number of positive factors have partially offset the psychological impact of rising interest rates in Hong Kong. — Li Ka-shing

Interest Rates Quotes By Ben Quayle

And that's the one thing that people do not understand is that we have very low interest rates and if those go back to historical levels or even go back to scary thoughts that they're back in the late '70s, early '80s, then that's going to really be hard to actually pay off those debts. It's going to be a - it's going to be a very big problem. — Ben Quayle

Interest Rates Quotes By Franklin Raines

Well, you know, we've got a lot of stimulus in the economy already from the tax cut, from the lowered interest rates, and also from the refinancing of mortgages. — Franklin Raines

Interest Rates Quotes By Suze Orman

Your credit score affects the interest rates you're offered on credit cards and loans, can be used to vet your job application, and in some states may influence your insurance premiums. — Suze Orman

Interest Rates Quotes By Marek Belka

Should that worse scenario materialize, then most probably our propensity to increase interest rates will be weaker. — Marek Belka

Interest Rates Quotes By Alex Berenson

Fannie Mae has never publicly disclosed how much money it could lose if interest rates rose 1.5 percentage points in a very short period of time. — Alex Berenson

Interest Rates Quotes By Ray Dalio

If inflation-adjusted interest rates decline in a given country, its currency is likely to decline. — Ray Dalio

Interest Rates Quotes By Alex Berenson

The Fed's ability to raise and lower short-term interest rates is its primary control over the economy. — Alex Berenson

Interest Rates Quotes By Geraldine Ferraro

Throwing Ronald Reagan out of office at the height of his popularity, with inflation and interest rates down, the economy moving and the country at peace, would have required God on the ticket and She was not available! — Geraldine Ferraro

Interest Rates Quotes By Andrew Kaufman

The projectionist can make you believe whatever she believes. If she believes interest rates are going to fall, and you have a short conversation with the Projectionist, you will too. If she believes that, no, in fact, you didn't signal when you turned left, causing the Projectionist to ram her car into the back of yours, so will you.
Her downfall began when she fell in love with the Inverse. She absolutely, 100% fell in love with the Inverse. She projected all this emotion onto him but the Inverse, being the Inverse, simply reflected the opposite of everything she was sending.
Strangely, neither the Inverse nor the Projectionist can let go of the relationship. — Andrew Kaufman

Interest Rates Quotes By John Maynard Keynes

Thus, after all, the actual rates of aggregate saving and spending do not depend on Precaution, Foresight, Calculation, Improvement, Independence, Enterprise, Pride or Avarice. Virtue and vice play no part. It all depends on how far the rate of interest is favourable to investment, after taking account of the marginal efficiency of capital. No, this is an overstatement. If the rate of interest were so governed as to maintain continuous full employment, virtue would resume her sway;
the rate of capital accumulation would depend on the weakness of the propensity to consume. Thus, once again, the tribute that classical economists pay to her is due to their concealed assumption that the rate of interest always is so governed. — John Maynard Keynes

Interest Rates Quotes By Michael Bloomberg

The problem of dealing with the financial industry is that you can measure it with interest rates coming down. You can measure it with the quantity of loans, and that sort of thing. The problem is, that nobody wants to take the loans. Once the banks are willing to give it, that's only half the problem. — Michael Bloomberg

Interest Rates Quotes By Malcolm Forbes

Why, just a couple of economic seasons ago, was idle cash considered an indication of bad management or lazy management? Because it meant that management didn't have this money out at work ... Now look. Presto! A new fashion! Cash is back in! Denigrating liquidity has dropped quicker than hemlines. A management is now saluted if it has some cash, some liquidity, doesn't have to go to the money market at huge interest rates to get the wherewithal to keep going and growing. Along with Ben Franklin, my father and your father would understand and applaud this new economic fashion ... — Malcolm Forbes

Interest Rates Quotes By Michael Hudson

The underlying strategy of the Fed is to tell people, "Do you want your money to lose value in the bank, or do you want to put it in the stock market?" They're trying to push money into the stock market, into hedge funds, to temporarily bid up prices. Then, all of a sudden, the Fed can raise interest rates, let the stock market prices collapse and the people will lose even more in the stock market than they would have by the negative interest rates in the bank. So it's a pro-Wall Street financial engineering gimmick. — Michael Hudson

Interest Rates Quotes By John Hull

The problem with interest rates are that you are not modeling a single number, you are modeling a whole term structure, so it is a sort of different type of problem. — John Hull

Interest Rates Quotes By James Grant

The art of banking is always to balance the risk of a run with the reward of a profit. The tantalizing factor in the equation is that riskier borrowers pay higher interest rates. Ultimate safety - a strongbox full of currency - would avail the banker nothing. Maximum risk - a portfolio of loans to prospective bankrupts at usurious interest rates - would invite disaster. A good banker safely and profitably treads the middle ground. — James Grant

Interest Rates Quotes By Bill Gross

With all this consumer debt, business debt, government debt, smaller movements in interest rates have a magnified effect. a small movement can tip the boat. — Bill Gross

Interest Rates Quotes By Randy J. Nelson

It is also only in humans that aggression may be used to commit crimes, to enslave others or compel acquiescence to religious or ideological doctrine, or to pursue wars of national interest. At the individual level, men are universally more aggressive than women, and rates of aggressive confrontation are greatest among those who are young, poor, or unmarried. Cultural factors moderate human aggression as well, with men's heightened sensitivity to signs of disrespect, challenge, or threat spawning a high frequency of confrontational violence in so-called "cultures of honor". — Randy J. Nelson

Interest Rates Quotes By Jamie Dimon

I want you to say to me right from the start, "We are here to serve customers. We're not here for me to make a lot of money. We're not here to bet on interest rates or credit spreads. We are here to serve our customers really well over a long period of time, and that's how you build a successful business." And so I want to see that, too, you know? — Jamie Dimon

Interest Rates Quotes By Kenneth Fisher

If you are prepared for some risk, junk bonds pay about 5%, but they tend to get whacked when interest rates rise. Same with lower-yielding but higher-quality corporate bonds. — Kenneth Fisher

Interest Rates Quotes By Ben Bernanke

Stronger regulation and supervision aimed at problems with underwriting practices and lenders' risk management would have been a more effective and surgical approach to constraining the housing bubble than a general increase in interest rates. — Ben Bernanke

Interest Rates Quotes By Rodrigo Rato

We believe that the Federal Reserve has to carry on with a progressive increase in interest rates as a consequence of the American economy. — Rodrigo Rato

Interest Rates Quotes By John Toppin

Typically, interest rates are higher the longer the time you are prepared to deposit your funds. — John Toppin

Interest Rates Quotes By Milton Friedman

The central banks cannot control interest rates. That's a mistake. They can control a particular rate, such as the Federal Funds rate, if they want to, but they can't control interest rates. — Milton Friedman

Interest Rates Quotes By Bernie Sanders

Former Senator Al D'Amato in 1991 offered an amendment to cap credit card interest rates at 14 percent. — Bernie Sanders

Interest Rates Quotes By Maria Lopez Vigil

Those sloppy priests that go around without their cassocks!" he would agonize. "Better that they go without their cassocks since they're just chasing after prostitutes anyway!" And he'd agonize more. It was true. There were womanizing priests. And liquor flowed faster than communion wine among them. Pastoral plans? They all went up in smoke. There was no interest. There was no effort. And the bishop? Bishop Machado didn't give orders and he didn't give advice. What he gave were loans at outrageous interest rates. Everybody knew those stories, and Father Romero knew them best because he saw all the drama from the inside. — Maria Lopez Vigil

Interest Rates Quotes By Alex Berenson

It's one of the fundamental principles of the stock market: When interest rates go up, stocks go down. And along with financial companies and cyclicals, technology companies - with their sky-high price-to-earnings multiples - should be among the biggest losers in an environment of rising rates. — Alex Berenson

Interest Rates Quotes By Jean Chatzky

The older you are when you buy an annuity, the shorter your life expectancy will be - so the greater a monthly paycheck the same sum of money will buy you. When interest rates are higher, the size of the paycheck for the same sum of money will rise also. — Jean Chatzky

Interest Rates Quotes By John Hull

The real challenge was to model all the interest rates simultaneously, so you could value something that depended not only on the three-month interest rate, but on other interest rates as well. — John Hull

Interest Rates Quotes By Niall Ferguson

Currency peg can mean higher volatility in short-term interest rates, as the central bank seeks to keep the price of its money steady in terms of the peg. It can mean deflation, if the supply of the peg is constrained (as the supply of gold was relative to the demand for it in the 1870s and 1880s). — Niall Ferguson

Interest Rates Quotes By Alex Berenson

It has been said that the Fed's job is to take the punch bowl away just as the party gets going, raising interest rates when the economy is growing too fast and inflation threatens. — Alex Berenson

Interest Rates Quotes By William Stanley Jevons

We often observe that there is abundance of capital to be had at low rates of interest, while there are also large numbers of artisans starving for want of employment. — William Stanley Jevons

Interest Rates Quotes By Tony Blair

If we want to contrast what we have done in the past few years on delivery with what the right hon. and learned Gentleman delivered, let us remember the interest rates at 10 per cent. to 15 per cent., the 1.5 million fewer people in work, the boom and the bust and the borrowing at 8 per cent. — Tony Blair

Interest Rates Quotes By Yanis Varoufakis

At a time of recession, when there is a mounting glut of labour and uninvested savings, a reduction in wages and interest rates does not help. In fact, it deepens the recession. — Yanis Varoufakis

Interest Rates Quotes By David Graeber

The International Monetary Fund basically acted as the world's debt enforcers - "You might say, the high-finance equivalent of the guys who come to break your legs." I launched into historical background, explaining how, during the '70s oil crisis, OPEC countries ended up pouring so much of their newfound riches into Western banks that the banks couldn't figure out where to invest the money; how Citibank and Chase therefore began sending agents around the world trying to convince Third World dictators and politicians to take out loans (at the time, this was called "go-go banking"); how they started out at extremely low rates of interest that almost immediately skyrocketed to 20 percent or so due to tight U.S. money policies in the early '80s; how, during the '80s and '90s, this led to the Third World debt crisis; how the IMF then stepped in to insist that, in order to obtain refinancing, poor countries would be obliged to abandon price supports on — David Graeber

Interest Rates Quotes By Anibal Cavaco Silva

After the accession to the euro zone, interest rates declined substantially in Portugal. — Anibal Cavaco Silva

Interest Rates Quotes By Thomas Piketty

the decrease in the top marginal income tax rate led to an explosion of very high incomes, which then increased the political influence of the beneficiaries of the change in the tax laws, who had an interest in keeping top tax rates low or even decreasing them further and who could use their windfall to finance political parties, pressure groups, and think tanks. — Thomas Piketty

Interest Rates Quotes By Michael Lewis

Before Volcker's speech, bonds had been conservative investments, into which investors put their savings when they didn't fancy a gamble in the stock market. After Volcker's speech, bonds became objects of speculation, a means of creating wealth rather than merely storing it. — Michael Lewis

Interest Rates Quotes By George Papandreou

Despite the deep reforms we are making, traders and speculators have forced interest rates on Greek bonds to record highs. — George Papandreou

Interest Rates Quotes By David Dreman

Bank One has got one of the best credit card divisions, ... The perception of investors is that financial services stocks are affected by interest rates and they're not. — David Dreman

Interest Rates Quotes By Ben Bernanke

The crisis and recession have led to very low interest rates, it is true, but these events have also destroyed jobs, hamstrung economic growth and led to sharp declines in the values of many homes and businesses. — Ben Bernanke

Interest Rates Quotes By David Baldacci

When the Fed raises or lowers interest rates, for instance, then that affects the entire economy. Contracts or expands it. — David Baldacci

Interest Rates Quotes By Charlie Munger

We're guessing at our future opportunity cost. Warrenis guessing that he'll have the opportunity to put capital out at high rates of return, so he's not willing to put it out at less than 10% now. But if we knew interest rates would stay at 1%, we'd change. Our hurdles reflect our estimate of future opportunity costs. — Charlie Munger

Interest Rates Quotes By Mario Draghi

Interest rates do not have to be identical across the whole euro area, but it is unacceptable if major differences arise from broken capital markets or concern about a euro area break-up. — Mario Draghi

Interest Rates Quotes By L. M. Boyd

Think today's interest rates are high? The Pilgrims borrowed $7000 from a London company of 70 investors in 1620, and devoted the next 23 years to repaying it at 43 percent. — L. M. Boyd

Interest Rates Quotes By Robert Rubin

A strong currency means that American consumers and businesses can buy imported goods and services more cheaply and that inflation and interest rates will be lower, ... It also puts pressure on American industry to increase productivity and competitiveness. These benefits can feed on themselves as foreign capital flows in more readily because of greater confidence in our currency. A weak dollar would have the contrary effects. — Robert Rubin

Interest Rates Quotes By Pauline Hanson

We have one of the highest interest rates in the world, and we owe more money per capita than any other country. All we need is a nail hole in the bottom of the boat and we're sunk. — Pauline Hanson

Interest Rates Quotes By Franklin Raines

And so the danger for the housing industry is if we see interest rates rise. — Franklin Raines

Interest Rates Quotes By Michael Lewis

Had Volcker never pushed through his radical change in policy, the world would be many bond traders and one memoir the poorer. — Michael Lewis

Interest Rates Quotes By Greg Ip

When people retire, their income drops much more sharply than their consumption. As a result, they stop saving and start drawing down the assets they've acquired during their high-saving years. That could start to put upward pressure on interest rates and downward pressure on stock prices. — Greg Ip

Interest Rates Quotes By Martin Schulz

We need economic growth in Europe and we need to find a solution for the excessive interest rates that are making it difficult for many countries to get their own debt under control. — Martin Schulz

Interest Rates Quotes By John D. Barrow

I love cosmology: there's something uplifting about viewing the entire universe as a single object with a certain shape. What entity, short of God, could be nobler or worthier of man's attention than the cosmos itself? Forget about interest rates, forget about war and murder, let's talk about space. Rudy Rucker21 — John D. Barrow

Interest Rates Quotes By Doug Casey

The time will come, and probably during 2009, that the only way the U.S. will be able to fund its deficits is to create money by printing it. The Treasury will have to sell bonds, and, in the absence of foreign buyers, the Fed will have to print the money to buy them. The consequence will be runaway inflation, increasing interest rates, recession, and inevitable tax increases on all Americans. — Doug Casey

Interest Rates Quotes By Mohamed El-Erian

If you happen to be the only one with negative interest rates, you also weaken your currency, which means you make your exports more competitive. — Mohamed El-Erian

Interest Rates Quotes By Ron Paul

A system of capitalism presumes sound money, not fiat money manipulated by a central bank. Capitalism cherishes voluntary contracts and interest rates that are determined by savings, not credit creation by a central bank. — Ron Paul

Interest Rates Quotes By John C. Malone

The fact that equities are being sold down, despite the lowest interest rates in recent history, simply means that the market doesn't see growth ahead for -very many businesses. — John C. Malone

Interest Rates Quotes By John Templeton

See the investment world as an ocean and buy where you get the most value for your money. Right now the value is in non-callable bonds. Most bonds are callable so when they start going up in price, the debtor calls them away from you. But the non-callable bonds, especially those non-callable for 25-30 years, can go way up in price if interest rates go way down. — John Templeton

Interest Rates Quotes By Ben Bernanke

Interest rates are used to achieve overall economic stability. — Ben Bernanke

Interest Rates Quotes By Jerry A. Webman

It would be helpful if someone would lay out exactly the economic mechanism that gets us from yet lower interest rates to actual economic activity. — Jerry A. Webman

Interest Rates Quotes By Jeffrey Eugenides

Is there anything as incredible as the love story of your own parents? Anything as hard to grasp as the fact that those two over-the-hill players, permanently on the disabled list, were once in the starting lineup? It's impossible to imagine my father, who in my experience was aroused mainly by the lowering of interest rates, suffering the acute, adolescent passions of the flesh. — Jeffrey Eugenides

Interest Rates Quotes By Steve Forbes

Mr. Greenspan did a very good job in the early 1990's. But recently he's fallen prey to this crazy theory that prosperity causes inflation. So they're trying to slow the economy down by raising interest rates. It's like a doctor saying you're in great health, so we have to make you sick a little bit. It's a bizarre theory. It's going to hurt our economy. — Steve Forbes

Interest Rates Quotes By Edmund Phelps

To pump up consumer or government demand would force interest rates up and asset prices down, possibly by enough to destroy more jobs than are created. — Edmund Phelps

Interest Rates Quotes By George Gilder

With currencies and interest rates far more volatile than the economic activity that they guide, the horizons of investment and commerce had to shrink proportionally with real economic knowledge. — George Gilder

Interest Rates Quotes By Bill Gross

It's sort of like a teeter-totter; when interest rates go down, prices go up. — Bill Gross

Interest Rates Quotes By Mark Ferguson

Many banks do not advertise they are portfolio lenders and many people working at the bank may not even know what a portfolio lender is. If you are calling up a bank and they say they aren't a portfolio lender, don't give up! Ask to talk to a loan officer and ask specific questions about what type of investor programs they offer. Here are some good questions to ask; Do you loan to investors who already have four mortgages? Do you sell your loans or keep them in-house? Do you allow investors with four or more mortgages to do cash out refinance? What terms and loan programs do you offer investors? ARM, 15, 30 year fixed, balloon? What interest rates are you charging and what are the initial costs for your loans? What — Mark Ferguson

Interest Rates Quotes By Niall Ferguson

When bond prices fall, interest rates soar, with painful consequences for all borrowers. — Niall Ferguson

Interest Rates Quotes By Mohamed A El-Erian

Ever since the 2008 global financial crisis, central banks had ventured, not by choice but by necessity, ever deeper into the unfamiliar and tricky terrain of "unconventional monetary policies." They floored interest rates, heavily intervened in the functioning of markets, and pursued large-scale programs that outcompeted one another in purchasing securities in the marketplace; to top it all off, they aggressively sought to manipulate investor expectations and portfolio decisions. — Mohamed A El-Erian

Interest Rates Quotes By James Surowiecki

Of course, looking tough on inflation is part of any central banker's job description: if investors believe that inflation is going to get out of control, you end up with higher interest rates and capital flight, and a vicious circle quickly ensues. — James Surowiecki

Interest Rates Quotes By Tulsi Gabbard

Students are suffering under incredibly high tuitions and high student loan interest rates. They graduate from school, and they're having a very difficult time finding a job. They don't feel as though there are honest leaders who are listening to them, and who will be a part of the solution. — Tulsi Gabbard

Interest Rates Quotes By Kenneth Fisher

One component of the leading economic indicators is the yield curve. Bond investors keep a close eye on this, as it illustrates the spread or difference between long-term interest rates and short-term ones. — Kenneth Fisher

Interest Rates Quotes By David Axelrod

I think the millions of people who had been able to renegotiate their mortgages so they are paying lower interest rates are better off. — David Axelrod

Interest Rates Quotes By Ray Dalio

The big question is: When will the term structure of interest rates change? That's the question to be worried about. — Ray Dalio

Interest Rates Quotes By Ray Dalio

It all comes down to interest rates. As an investor, all you're doing is putting up a lump-sump payment for a future cash flow. — Ray Dalio

Interest Rates Quotes By Kenneth Eade

The warning signs had been there since the crash of 2008, but after the initial shock, nothing had been done to correct the problem. Banks had been trading over $7 trillion in risky derivatives daily, as well as fixing interest rates and making bets on the rigged games. There was an ever-growing gap between the elite and all the rest of the people which had continued to develop even after the 2008 crash. — Kenneth Eade
