Shrinking working age populations is new. But Feds power to print has never been higher. You had 10 years to buy the real estate dip. One month to buy the lockdown dip and a few months to sell LTTs. Is the Fed gonna juice the economy for November, or are they gonna hand Trump a high rate dumpster fi...

Vanguard funds:

LTT 4.46%, 15 year duration
