I don’t really understand what’s happening here except there’s now a disincentive to invest in longer longer term treasury notes and the same thing happened a year before the financial crisis hit. So this could be a harbinger of bad things to come.

I foresee major inflation, combined with a very sluggish investment pattern for the excess money. This is tied to the tax cuts, which increase the money supply both directly, by leaving it in fatcat hands, and indirectly, through deficit spending. The sluggishness results from a lack of incentive for capital investment, as opposed to money market speculation.
