Fasten you seatbelts for a strong rise in interest rates. America has already started raising them. But when the new American tax plan is voted into law this week it will have a turbo effect. Money will flood into the USA and USA GDP will start rising. It is already predicted at 3%. We are going to see several rises in American interest rates over the next year and quite possibly a doubling of the current rate in this time frame. Where America goes the UK follows. Do not be surprised if interest rates in the UK are up to 1.5% by the end of next year. Any other time in history a 1% rise would be nothing, But in this mad era this is a 200% rise on what we already have. This is the black swan that is looming over the horizon. THis is why so many people are angry about America'a tax plan. Its what it does to the rest of the world economy and international interest rates that worries them.

@3 all the interest only mortgages are going to be a disaster. Repayment mortgages go up much less than the relative increase in rates whereas interest only goes up exactly as much...

Any $ interest rate rise will cause money to flow into the US but the tax plan will have little effect. It won't 'bring back' investment from abroad because the money is invested where wages are low, or in buying back the company's own stock or buying other companies. Wall Street will calculate the tax cuts into higher equity prices without bringing money home. And there'll be no meaningful IR rise because it will cause a credit crunch and an unwinding of derivatives. Rather than raise IRs the Fed would just print more Treasuries. The Republican tax cutters are making excuses by claiming that cutting social services (which are well in credit - except that the government 'borrowed' the money by printing more Treasury bonds to deposit in the Fund in exchange for real money already there) will obviate an IR rise for mortgage and student debt and credit card holders. Plunder capitalism.
