US government bonds are considered risk-free. The interest rate at which all other bonds can be sold is determined by this risk-free rate on US government bonds plus a risk premium, which depends on the creditworthiness of the debt issuers. Therefore, when the yield on the government bond rises, the interest rates on mortgages, corporate bonds, credit cards, and student loans also rise—unless you’re in an inverted yield curve. Today’s guest explains what a bond is, what bonds are the safest, and the best place to put your money.
Adam Taggart, Founder of Wealthion, says, “An inverted yield curve is one of the most dependable signals for an approaching recession, and you should say to yourself, ‘I have to get prepared that we may be entering a pretty material recession.’”
Hosts Robert and Kim Kiyosaki and guest Adam Taggart discuss the likeness of a recession, the safety of investing bonds, and how to secure your wealth during the next financial crisis.
