    Economists Predict Recession (YIELD CURVE TRENDS)

But now (July 2018), short-term interest rates are very near long-term rates.

This study from the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco is worth your attention. Our credit goes to the Federal Reserve Bank Economists, Michael Bauer and Thomas Mertens, who have done this excellent research.
