Why I Love Spam Copy, Starring the Federal Reserve Seductiveness Rate

 I vote we change it to "seductiveness rate"

I am not a writer. Whoever came up with this is the true literary talent. Obviously the copywriter (or machine) has confused "interest" with "seductiveness", which the Fed most certainly does not have as a tool. Trust me, I've checked.

The Federal Reserve, in coordination with unfamiliar executive banks, has marked down the key seductiveness rate from 2 percent to 1.5 percent. The Bank of England followed suit, slicing the rate by half a point to 4.5 percent, whilst the European Central Bank lowered the rate to 3.75 percent. The executive banks of China, Canada, Sweden, and Switzerland have been slicing their rates as well. In addition, the Fed marked down the puncture lending rate to banks by half a commission point to 1.75 percent. In response, the budding lending rate for millions of borrowers will dump by a analogous amount.

I'd link to the source but then that would be promoting this sort of behavior.
