Destinctive Features of Business Investment Decision-Making under Conditions of low Interest Rates in USA
This paper examines the role of low interest rates in making investment decisions on the example of the US economy. The choice of the country is due to the fact that it has a large amount of statistics and research, which helps a more complete analysis. The work deals with the events before the "Great Recession of 2008" and after. The analysis shows that, although in theory low interest rates should stimulate investment growth, in practice this turned out not to be so. Companies often can not get financing from banks, in this regard, nominally cheap credit, in practice doesn't exist. More over, low rates contribute to the risk grow among the investors that has a negative impact on the economy. Also, low intrest rates investments have a number of distinctive features that are being discussed along the research.
