Interest rates

The Fed lets banks have money at almost 0% supposedly to encourage them to make loans and thus stimulate the economy, but they don’t make loans necessary to a healthy business climate. Instead they prefer to take 0% money from the Fed and invest it in government bonds that pay 3 to 4%, thus collecting risk-free interest on Uncle Sam’s money.
