Interest rates have been suppressed for a long time, they need to be allowed to fluctuate according to market demands.

That said, who knows why now.  The fed is irrational.  And they're political.  Or do I repeat myself?

The US is already dead.  It just hasn't realized it, yet.  There is no way out of 21 trillion dollars of debt and 120 trillion of liabilities.  The federal government will collapse.

State and local governments aren't in much better shape but they will provide stability and, no, 'banksters' will not buy up the country on the cheap.  Collapse of the feds doesn't have to lead to anarchy.

Also, if the fed is raising interest rates, isn't it also raising the payments on the national debt?  Good ol' unka sam isn't going to be pleased about that.
