Interest rates on short term bonds are higher than interest rates paid by long term bonds. What this means is that people are so worried about the near term future that they are piling into safer long-term investments. Stock market of course took a big dump. Tariffs not helping, and lowering interest rates a band-aid solution for a growing economic wound. Very concerning for recessionary fears in the future.
