Are low rates cyclical or structural?

With asset markets selling off across the globe this morning, the multi-trillion dollar question is whether US Treasuries (as a benchmark for other interest rates) are now breaking into a new cycle of higher rates, or whether yields will continue to be capped within a secular low rate theme caused by slow global growth after the credit bust. We are open to either outcome, but it seems most likely that low rates today are a secular theme that will be extended a while longer as the world languishes through this third global recession since 2000. We watch with great interest.
