biill gross in a recent article said he expects in the future that the Fed will limit interest rates paid on bank deposits if market interest rate should spike up. my assumption is that this will be done to protect the profits of the banking sector. if other posters think there are other reasons please post. I don't have the link to the article. it might have been bloomberg news. anyone who has a link please post. my feeling is when inflation comes roaring back the american gov't will try to control interest rates to fool people that there is less inflation.
