Central banks' interest rates around the world

Comparing the world's central bank interest rates

The Federal Reserve's main interest rate target is still among the world's lowest, even after the central bank's first hike since 2006.

Of 56 central banks in 75 countries, only Israel, Japan, Sweden and Switzerland were lower, and three of those are now at negative interest rates. Inflation-prone countries like Belarus, Ghana and Ukraine were at the top with interest rates above 20 percent.
