The bond market is beginning to sound the alarm of a recession, with an inversion in U.S. Treasury yields occurring on Monday for the first time since 2007. The yield on the 5-year Treasury note fell below the yield on the 3-year note, meaning that investors were being paid more to hold U.S. government debt maturing in three years than comparable bonds maturing in five years.

Barofsky was an watchdog of the federal bailout program that saw the government sign over $700 billion to the U.S. Department of Treasury in an effort to stabilize the economy and financial system in the midst of the 2008 great financial crisis. “It seems crazy that we’re even talking about this,” Barofsky told Yahoo Finance, specifically pointing out recently passed legislation to loosen capital requirements – or the amount of liquid and easy-to-sell assets banks must hold – and congressional discussions about rolling back the so-called Volcker rule, which prohibits banks from certain investment activities with their own accounts and limits their dealings with hedge funds and private equity funds.
