U.S. 10-year Note Rate is too High

Sharing is Caring!

by Yupperroo

Here are the 10-year rates of the G7:

USA 1.75
UK 1.15
JAPAN 0.15
GERMANY -0.056
CANADA 1.72
ITALY 1.30
FRANCE 0.27

It makes no sense to me that the US is paying such a high rate when compared to other countries. The dollar will strengthen against other currencies and cause imports to become more expensive, leading to inflation. I can hardly fathom that Germany has negative rates or that Japan’s rate is non-existent.

With the Fed likely to continue to increase rates the U.S. will be at 2.5% before too long. Why are other countries skating by? Isn’t inflation a worldwide event?
