Circumstance resulting when government expenditures exceed government income. To finance this difference, the United States Treasury will auction Treasury bills, notes, and bonds. In order to attract investors such as insurance companies, the Treasury will pay higher interest rates on the new issues, resulting in a decline in bond (already issued) prices and the increase in their rates.
