I added in a trend line going back to 1995ish and another that is just a few years old. A move above 4% would break these trend lines and signal a period of higher interest rates. My guess this will be a result of high debt but the long term will be driven, I hope, by economic growth. I really don't think inflation or hyperinflation is a risk.
