Many mortgages use the LIBOR to set their rates and to set how much adjustable rates can increase – this effects the common man of which I am one! I remember when I bought my first hour I asked the back issuing my mortgage why they used the LIBOR. The response was “Because this is an inviolate rate and the best indication of market rates and a true competitive picture for banks to use as a benchmark.”.
