Not sure if this is the right place but... Heres the scenario - Hillary is elected and she manages to freeze interest rates for 5 yrs as she said she would. What happens to the Fed? Do they become irrelevant for a bit? What happens to the bond market? Does it also become irrelevant? What becomes of the stock market? Do people put in more money because there is no bond market? What becomes of all the foreign investment into the bond sales? Does it dry up, looking for better pastures elsewhere? What kind of rate do we need? Obviously fairly low to avoid all these people loosing their houses. I just can't see any positive scenario's for government intrusion in this area. Make 'em pretty, Chris P.S. Try to keep this civil - this is not a political debate. It is a discussion of the potential outcomes should she be elected and this become a reality.
