白宫考虑发行长期债券为经济刺激计划提供资金

华盛顿,3月19日(新华社)——据当地媒体报道,白宫正在考虑发行长期债券,为应对冠状病毒爆发而提出的1.3万亿美元财政刺激方案提供资金。


彭博社周四援引知情人士报道,美国总统唐纳德·特朗普的顾问们正在考虑同时发行50年期和25年期债券,以寻求以纳税人最低成本增加联邦债务的融资。


报告称,白宫国家经济委员会(National Economic Council)主任拉里·库德洛(Larry Kudlow)喜欢这个主意,财政部长史蒂文·姆钦(Steven Mnuchin)现在更愿意这么做。


姆钦周四在接受福克斯商业频道(Fox Business)采访时表示,政府将“利用低利率”发行更多债券。


“鉴于我们希望规则和可预测,我们决定……我们可以通过发行20年期债券筹集更多资金,这将延长我们的债券期限,”他表示。


“好消息是,我们可以以较低的水平为我们的大量债务再融资,我们在这里发行更多债务没有问题,”盖特纳表示。他同时敦促国会通过拟议中的刺激方案。


他说:“最重要的问题是,我们现在通过了这个1万亿美元的经济刺激方案,这样我们就可以把钱投入经济。我认为,当辛勤工作的美国人和企业能够获得信贷的时候,经济就会稳定下来。”


此前,美联储(Federal Reserve)周日将基准利率下调了整整一个百分点,至接近于零的水平,并承诺增持至少7000亿美元债券,以缓解人们对冠状病毒爆发的担忧。

 

WASHINGTON, March 19 (Xinhua) -- The White House is considering issuing long-term bonds to finance a proposed 1.3-trillion-USD fiscal stimulus package in response to the coronavirus outbreak, according to local media.

U.S. President Donald Trump's advisers are considering issuing both 50-year and 25-year bonds as they seek financing for additional federal debt with the lowest cost to taxpayers, Bloomberg reported on Thursday, citing people familiar with the matter.

White House National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow likes the idea and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is now more willing to do it, the report said.

In an interview with Fox Business on Thursday, Mnuchin said the administration is going to "take advantage of lower interest rates" to issue more bonds.

"Given our desire to be regular and predictable, we decide that...we could raise a lot more money at 20 year bonds and that would extend our duration," he said.

"The good news is, we can refinance a lot of our debt at low levels and we have no problem issuing more debt here," said the Treasury secretary, while urging Congress to pass the proposed stimulus package.

"The most important issue is we now get this $1 trillion package passed so we get money into the economy, and I think you'll see when hardworking Americans and business have access to credit, you're going to see a stabilization in this economy," he said.

The latest move came after the Federal Reserve on Sunday cut its benchmark interest rate by a full percentage point to near zero and pledged to increase its bond holdings by at least 700 billion dollars amid mounting fears over the coronavirus outbreak.
