Interest Rate Statistics: UK Debt Costs Below the US

August 22, 2012 2:21 pm

We spotted this today:

“The US has usually been able to borrow more cheaply than the UK, and particularly so since the financial crisis, which spurred investors to dump risky assets and pile into those perceived to be the safest in the world: US Treasuries.

The benchmark 10-year bond yields of both countries have climbed from their record lows in recent weeks, but the move has been more subdued in the UK.”
