are being discussed in the Executive Branch.
White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow likes the idea, one of the people said. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, although initially skeptical, is now more willing to do it, the people said.
Do they really think they're going to get people to buy a fifty year bond for 2 - 3%? They've been having problems selling the tens.
How about 8%. I might think about buying such a thing at that yield.
But let's imagine 5% or 6%. All of a sudden that income annuity my wife can get from TIAA looks pretty good. So we sell out all the stocks and bonds in her IRA to finance it. And I start looking around for a reputable income annuity for my IRA. And I sell all the stuff in my IRA, if it's worth anything at that point.
There are probably rosier scenarios. Maybe someone could point one out to me.
