  1. huh? its not that complicated or confusing.
    a yield sign is a stop sign you can run if nobodys coming.
    there ya go. mystery solved.

  2. Please remove the irritating background music. Also please refrain from silly humor.

  3. Best story ever! When people in my town quit stopping in the middle of the traffic circle on my way to work, then the commenters can criticize.

  4. Next time I’m in a conversation with someone I’m definitely dropping in that the yield curve is inverted even if it doesn’t fit unit the context of the topic at all

  5. Only in America could people misunderstand something so simple as a "yield" sign. This is what you get when you put all of your money into unnecessary defense contracts to get kickbacks instead of putting it towards education, because you know the educated voter doesn't vote republican.

  6. In most other English speaking countries, the term used for this sign is "GIVE WAY" instead of "YIELD." They both mean: Stop, unless the road is clear.

  7. Other countries have “Give Way” signs instead.
    Yield is something asked by someone losing a duel, for example “Will you yield?”, which is more a challenge than a request (“No! I will not yield!”).

  8. feel free to thank trump farmers, you'll feel it the most in domestic trading :DDD

  9. In America "yield" stands for put the petal to the metal and cut everyone off while giving them the one finger salute.

  10. Chuck – The next time you shave, you will have to stand a lot closer to the razor.

  11. Its one sign (pun) that the notion that US citizen are an inherent threat on, for example, European roads.
    Its really not that complicated, but in other countries there is no text in these signs that literally explains it…

  12. For those who don't understand what an Inverted Yield Curve is, think of it this way. The more time you have to rob the bank, the more money you can stuff into your bags. But when the police are on their way, the robber who gets out of the bank first is more likely to keep his money. That's what it means.

  13. Yield simply means "Pay attention to the right of way".
    If the way is free – you drive…if someone is coming, who has the right of way – let them pass first – then you drive.

  14. the yield curve might be inverted because people just want to sit out uncertainty rather than worry about where they will find interest rates at rollover time. will he be impeached, lose the election, give up the tariffs, or make a deal with china? Will he be struck by lightning?

  15. Yield means the production out of certain asset that has been employed.
    Yield per acre is a standard way to access productivity of seeds.
    Inverse yield means instead yield being above ground (being profitable) its below ground (being loss making).
    So by investing in debt you won't make money but lose at certain rate.
