  1. Okay... so I see three things with this graph. One... the interest rates were waaay low in 1975 (was that pre-Carter). Two... rates shot waaay up during the recession in the early '80s (must have been caused by the recession) Three the graph shows that we are no longer in a recession... oh yeah... lol that's because it only lasted 18 months. haha
