Europe and Asia are awash with $13 trillion in negative yield sovereign and corporate bonds. Alan Greenspan says negative interest rates are coming to America. And the Fed just announced another rate cut, even while Chair Jay Powell and Mr. Trump assure us the economy is better than ever. Economist Bob Murphy joins Jeff Deist to make sense of the nonsensical world of negative interest rates.
