Janet Yellen's Interest Rate Would Rise 1,000 Percent

Ben Stein's DREEMZ By Wednesday, 20 August 2014 12:14 PM Current | Bio | Archive

The Fed Chair, Dr. Janet Yellen, has advised that she plans to see the short term Fed borrowing rate rise from .25 percent to 2.5 percent within about two years. This would mark the end of a fantastically long period of the Fed keeping interest rates at essentially zero.

So, Mrs. Yellen apparently has in mind a rise of roughly 1,000 percent for the short-term rate.
