n the early 1980s, interest rates on long-term debt were at remarkable levels ? above 15% with some even higher. Within a decade, rates had dropped precipitously. I have a couple of questions about that;What would the effect of a decline in interest rates on those instruments have on their price?;What impact would that decline have on other financial instruments? (Mortgages, Money Market Instruments, Stock);What does the change in prices after a significant change in interest rates say about the relationship of price and interest rates?;Most of the bonds that had been issued in the early 1980s were no longer on the market by the mid-1990s. Why do you suppose that is?
