investment and low interest is something i find difficult to swallow. i understand investment rises with low interest rates as the cost to borrow is low. however is this false investment. when the interest rate rises again unless the debt has been paid off the gains seen from the low rate are negatives caused by the higher rate. surely the more sensible position would be to pay off debt when the interest rate is low. it also concerns me that the increase in the demand the lower rates creates could counteract itself when the market adjusts and the extra demand impacts on the price of goods in short inflation could hit although delayed. could it be said this principle is a false premise. although there is investment any gain it creates is quickly taken away so is the investment real or simply for show. also does the investment go to where it is needed. when the interest rate is low banks do not lend money out as easily like at the moment so does it have a real impact on businesses that need the money. there are other consequences of low rate of interest due to the lack of income it provides savers like pensioners. what do you think is this a position of a bygone economic age or do you still think it has its place in modern economics. or is the fact that this position is not occurring the textbook expectation evidence the old economic way of thinking is not dealing with the modern world.
