Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Bond Economics: Japan And The Costs Of Bond Yield Control
Costs to Yield Curve Manipulation
The Mitchell post explains why the government can set the entire yield curve. I will instead focus on the potential risks to such a posture.

    Losing the ability to influence the economy via setting interest rates.
    The political cost of changing bond prices.
    The loss of market information.
    Political cost of interest expense.

I will cover these in turn.
