    Like anything demand determines the cost of things. In a recession, the vast majority of people cannot afford to buy a home or upgrade from the one they own. Dropping mortgage interest rates is intended to encourage home sales as a result.

    To stimulate the economy. People are more apt to buy a house. People who buy houses also buy stuff for the house and hire people to move it in (or install it, like carpets). Manufacturers can then hire more people to make more stuff; and the economy improves.

    Not necessarily.

    I remember back in the early 80's during a bad recession and interest rates were 18%

    Which was great if you were an investor but hell if you were a home buyer.
