The last year has been truly historic. What consequences await?

The included chart shows just how incredible recent events in financial markets have been. Up until the last year, the annualized percentage change in the Federal Reserve's key policy interest rate, the Federal Funds rate, had not been particularly dramatic.

As of just now, though, the annualized percentage increase in the Federal Funds interest rate sits at 5,600%. The number is so incredible it is worth thinking about whether it actually means anything or not.
