Nobody is issuing bonds with a decent return. Corporations are repatriating their funds from overseas. They don't need to borrow money now. Municipals are waiting for the infrastructure stimulus package soon to released. The Fed is barely raising their rates so Treasure Bonds won't even keep up with inflation.

Your best buy on bonds were during Jimmy Carter's administration. And I don't think anybody wants to revisit that!
You make some good points. Repatriated money held by large corporations and a greatly reduced corporate tax rate will strengthen the economy. My only concern is P/E's are currently relatively high.

The otherwise devastating Carter years were when I loaded up on bonds. I will not buy bonds now but I do keep what I consider to be an adequate cash reserve in short term instruments. historic interest rates graph - Google Search
