from a sociological perspective, it could be argued that the reason why interest rates are still at lows is because of the vast importance individuals currently attach to the future

  1. Hmmm… econoically speaking, wouldn’t supply and demand suggest interest rates should then be high?

    Hmmm… I don’t think if you were looking out for your ‘future’ you’d be interested in high-interest rate debt, would you?

  3. You are right that I would prefer a lower interest rate. However, the market is driven by how much I would be willing to spend. So, if I really want that car *now* or that house *now* in order to secure my future, then demand is high and interest rates rise. Interest rates fall when the economy needs a boost. That is, when people are inclined to secure their future by not spending money. Especially money they don’t have.
