I remember taking a personal finance class more than 20 years ago and seeing a neat little graph in the textbook showing a straight line at a perfect 45 degree angle: the higher the risk, the higher the reward.
One obvious consequence is that higher interest rates tend to put pressure on asset prices.
Stock prices surged as a result of this artificial demand.
But I'm illustrating that the risk differential between the two options is essentially zero.
The people who drive these policy decisions are being EXTREMELY vocal.
