“No, the Fed shouldn’t and probably won’t raise rates before next summer. I think that’s still a couple of years away.”

“They’ve been low for a long time, so I’ll say rates are going up, but not by much. Any rise will be moderate.” 

Ira Neaman

“No. The government is the largest borrower and spender, so any rate increase would cost the government in interest charges and hamper its ability to make payments.”

Jim Franklyn

“I believe we are trending upward as an industry and a small hike in interest rates will not impact that. But sooner or later, rates are going up.”

Mitch Mounger

“Not before next summer, but it will happen in 2015. We still have room to lower the unemployment rate without a significant inflation problem.”

“I don’t think it will. The fact that rates have stayed this low for a long time has given small and large companies the ability to stay in business. A change in rates would add pressure.”
