From the Fed's point of view, the high unemployment is keeping inflation in check. I have more discussion of this in my last weekly summary. It is very frustrating to see this slow and steady decline of interest rates. I wish I could report some rate hikes for a change.

In some other countries, banks are paying 0.01% APY for saving deposits. Maybe we are heading there too.
