Real CD Yields The chart below hardly reflects the “greatest economy ever.”  It illustrates and asset-driven economy addicted to negative real interest rates and easy money. The Fed, bowing to political pressure, pushes short-term rates lower hoping to turn that 70-year old pensioner relying on her marginal interest income to pay for 18-holes at the local muni, into a stock jockey to keep the S&P
