WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Thursday said the United States may issue 100-year bonds if a bid to issue 50-year bonds is successful.
“If there is proper demand we will issue 50-year bonds,” Mnuchin said in an interview with DealBook and streamed online live. If those are successful, he said, the U.S. “will consider” 100-year bonds.
