Nothing is as funny as old forecasts. This one comes from the year 2000. Remember New Economy and Great Moderation? At that time, economists were worried about the possible lack of U.S. federal debt. Questions were asked what would replace T-Bonds as the tool for monetary policy and the benchmark risk-free investment.
Lack of federal T-Bonds has never happened. It's not likely that it will in any foreseeable future. (Well, actually - what is it - foreseeable future?)
