Overall, a low neutral rate implies that short-term interest rates could more frequently hit the zero lower bound and remain there for extended periods of time. As this occurs, central banks may increasingly need to resort to what were previously thought of as unconventional policies, including negative policy interest rates.

We are not convinced that negative interest rates will become a permanent feature of the fixed income landscape, but they can likely persist for several years at least. While low interest rates are theoretically an economic stimulant, growth headwinds begin to mount as rates become negative. It’s hard enough to understand how regular interest rates work, so no one will blame you if negative rates make your head spin. To help make sense of things, we’ve put together this primer A negative interest rate means banks would pay a small amount of money each month to park some of their money at the Fed – a reversal of how a bank typically works.

However, people will be affected by rate cuts in different ways. For example, if negative interest rates impact mortgage rates, spending on housing may increase. In this primer, we examine these questions, starting with key facts about negative nominal interest rates. Our conclusion: there is little magic about having a slightly negative, as opposed to slightly positive interest rates. Since December 2018, the amount of debt carrying negative interest rates has increased significantly. Most of this debt is issued in Europe and Japan. The stock of negative yielding debt has more than doubled, from approximately $8 trillion at the end of 2018 to approximately $17 trillion at the end of August 2019. Negative interest rates are extremely rare. Even rates as low as 1% are historically unusual. In his epic study of interest rates, A History of Interest Rates (1963), author Sidney Homer suggests rates lower than 3% were virtually unknown in ancient Mespotamia, Greece or Rome, or in medieval and renaissance Europe. Overall, a low neutral rate implies that short-term interest rates could more frequently hit the zero lower bound and remain there for extended periods of time. As this occurs, central banks may increasingly need to resort to what were previously thought of as unconventional policies, including negative policy interest rates.
