Bond prices decline as investors favor risky assetsThere's another reason bond prices fall. Reuters doesn't mention it---doesn't even use the word---, but Fox does: inflation.

I have noticed inflation while shopping for food and gas. IMO the Democrats and their MSM allies do not want such perceptions, including concern about stagflation, to crystallize into a national issue.
