They compete for the revered role of safe haven for funds. In today’s day and age, with numerous storms, some unprecedented, safe haven is especially valuable. One of the most important jobs for the USFederal Reserve, JPMorgan (its agent), and the USCongress is to create the impression that USTreasurys are indeed not only safe, but beyond reproach and free from any hint of default potential. In recent months, with a failure of many important US-based financial engines, and sharp economic decline, made more complex by mammoth commitments from the USGovt on rescues and stimulus, the pristine image of USTreasurys has suffered from severe tarnish.
