Real Interest Rates

[EDIT: For up-to-date real interest rate charts see here.]
Here we present a consolidated view of real rates around the globe. As usual real interest rates in the perpetually-monetizing West are in deep negative territory (although be warned that they’re moving strongly higher at present). In contrast, real rates in Japan and the Czech. Republic are deteriorating rapidly.
