Then it rose again to 3.23 percent in 1928, right before the 1929 crash. Then, it gradually declined from there, to .97 percent in 1943. It then remained consistently between .97 percent and .50 percent until it reached back again above .97 percent, to 1.00 percent for the first time, in 1986, after which it passed 2 percent in 1992, and then passed the 3 percent mark in 2005." I'd just like to give a shout out to the folks in DC for watching out for what's important.
