White House Mulls New 50-, 25-Year Bonds to Finance Stimulus
50 year Federal Reserve bonds?Will Wall street go along? Who will buy them and what happens when inflation hits? The common Tax payers are on the big hook this time around.The Federal Reserve will buy their own paper once again.

Mnuchin said on Fox Business News Wednesday that he concluded in January that there wouldn’t be enough investor demand for ultra-long bonds, but that now “we’re going to take advantage of low interest rates.”
