The Long Wave Revisited
AbstractA key question for businesses and investors is whether the low inflation and low long-term interest rates we are now experiencing are a business cycle or a longer-term phenomenon. This paper updates and expands my earlier study on long waves [Synnott 1995]. Using this analytical perspective, I conclude that it is likely that high-grade, long-term bond yields will remain low, especially in real terms, for several years. Low long-term real interest rates for an extended period give the United States a major opportunity for investment and growth, as in previous long-term cycles, provided that appropriate government policies and plans are in place.
