True. Though if the long bond hit 14% like it did in 1981, it would be mighty tempting. It's unlikely inflation would run that high, that long.


But if the long bond does hit 14%, then the market is saying exactly that, that it thinks there is a good probability inflation will remain that high that long. Of course the market is often wrong, but predicting when and in what direction is no simple matter.
