Arab Today, arab today IMF official warns US that debt costs could rise

Washington - AFP

A senior International Monetary Fund official warned Washington on Thursday not to take for granted its record-low borrowing costs. With the yield on the 10-year US Treasury bond falling this week below 2.0 percent for the first time, John Lipsky, until last month the number two at the IMF and now a special adviser to the its managing director, Christine Lagarde, said low rates are not a green light for more borrowing.\"It\'s easy to claim: If this (US sovereign debt) is a big problem, why is it possible that the US government can borrow on a 10-year term for two percent?\" Lipsky said. \"Well, in view of the European experience, it\'s pretty obvious that this is not something that can just be taken for granted -- favorable market access,\" he said, pointing to Europe\'s weaker economies like Greece and Portugal now facing double-digit borrowing rates. \"Markets can change their minds, and when they do change their minds they tend to do it in a hurry,\" said Lipsky, speaking at a book launch at the IMF headquarters in Washington. \"So to ignore these big problems, even in the biggest economies, would be a real mistake.\"
