Interest rates

Amazon and Tesla are only possible because of extremely low interest rates. Effectively, to get a return people have to invest in businesses because leaving the money in the bank results in interest lower than inflation.

If US debt funding ever starts to falter and interest rates rise, it will be an interesting time for future economists.
