Exchange Rates and Interest Rates
Since the end of 1995, the difference between long and short-term interest rates has been widening in the U.S., Japan, Germany, and the U.K., possibly because short-term rates are expected to rise in all these countries. Higher short-term rates could result from stronger real economic activity or from a general tightening of monetary policy.
