found a source of international yield curves

I have no hard data on this but the global economy suggests that yield curves in several different countries might follow each other.

From the Federal Reserve paper I quoted earlier A negative term spread was always followed by an economic slowdown Always is a strong term especially in investing.

The yield curve is not inverted today. . In any of those countries. In the US it is a bit steeper that was a month ago.
If you want to call it "Flattened" you must have a definition of "flattened" first, then see how your definition fits the data.
I have no idea whether this flattening will be followed by an inversion .

I do suspect that even those academicians at the Fed, even following flawed rules made by long dead white guys, using flawed data , really think that inflation is bad enough for them to cause a recession to stop it. But I can't be sure, they have made a long series of dumb mistakes in the past.
