    simple question sure answer is complicated

    The simple answer isn't complicated ;)

    You need to focus on spread income, which is mostly the 10-year number. The 'cost' of borrowing is the short term rates which can be as high as the 2-year but generally has been 1-6 month rates.

    This is why a spike in the short-term rates would be bad for the companies if it were not also accompanied by a spike in the longer term rates. This means you want a sharper curve, not a flatter curve in the treasuries.
