I vividly recall proudly paying the well-spent, five dollar entrance fee to see my shy nephew, Etienne (Etti for short), with his newly assembled basketball team playing their first game of the season. In tow, I kept my Economist magazine well-fittingly folded on an article about young Kurds adopting the game of basketball snuggly tucked into my left back pocket of my jeans. For a number of years now, the Economist has validated itself to be more than just a faithful subway companion and exceptional read, but it has actually been inspirational through some of the most difficult times of my adult life.

At this point in my college career my major is a reminder of the intended success that I strive for. Though the field of finance does interest me, I don’t claim to fully understand what it means to be a finance major. Therefore, I make my decision to work towards a degree in finance based on the perceived challenges of the study

An opportunity cost is essentially a decision between two conceivable choices where you judge the advantages of one decision over the other. You can decide to do this or you can decide to do that.

In this way, the Fed manages price inflation in the economy. So bonds affect the U.S. economy by determining interest rates. This affects the amount of liquidity. This determines how easy or difficult it is to buy things on credit, take out loans for cars, houses or education, and expand businesses. In other words, bonds affect everything in the economy. Treasury bonds impact the economy by providing extra spending money for the government and consumers. This is because Treasury bonds are essentially a loan to the government that is usually purchased by domestic consumers. However, for a variety of reasons, foreign governments have been purchasing a larger percentage of Treasury bonds, in effect providing the U.S. government with a loan. This allows the government to spend more, which stimulates the economy. Treasury bonds also help the consumer. When there is a great demand for bonds, it lowers the interest rate.
