Question

If the interest rate on a loan is fixed at 6% over the course of 10 years, and the rate of inflation is currently 2.5%, which of the following is NOT true?

the real interest rate is less than the nominal interest rate

the borrower bears the risk of higher inflation

the lender bears the risk of higher inflation

the nominal interest rate is 6% the real interest rate is 3.5%

Answer #1

Option D is not true, Because the value of real interest rate is depends on the Expected or actual inflation rate, for the current period this statement is True but for the rest it is false.

According to the Fisher equation/Effect, Real interest rate should always be less than Nominal interest rate give the positive inflation rate.

And rest two options are true and are depends on the value of inflation rate, because if inflation rate decreases it will going to hurt borrowers as they have to give money back which is more worthy then when they have borrowed from lender and vice a versa

Era
borrowed $20,000 from Struan Bank at the quoted interest rate of
10%. The bank hoped to generate 5% real return on the loan it

situation, the borrower (Era) or the lender (Struan Bank)?

Suppose Thad loans Alyssa $1000 for one year at 10% nominal
interest rate (i = 10%). The price of a cup of coffee is $2 and
everyone expects it to cost $2.04 next year (π e = 2%). At the end
of the year, Alyssa will repay $1100.
a) Based on their expectations, how many cups of coffee are
given up by Thad today? How many does he expect to be able to
consume in one year?
b) What is...

Today, Malorie takes out a 20-year loan of $200,000, with a
fixed interest rate of 5.0% per annum compounding monthly for the
first 3 years. Afterwards, the loan will revert to the market
interest rate.
Malorie will make monthly repayments over the next 20 years, the
first of which is exactly one month from today. The bank calculates
her current monthly repayments assuming the fixed interest rate of
5.0% will stay the same over the coming 20 years.
(c) Calculate...

Number of years= 20
Number of months=240
Annual Percentage Rate=8.00%
Monthly interest rate=0.67%
Loan amount=$441,747
Fixed monthly repayment amount=$ 3,694.95
1. The borrower actually had to pay $250 more each month due to

rate compounded monthly, the borrower is actually charged on the
loan taking into account these charges

3. The total principle paid in the 4th year?
4. The amount...

A fixed-rate mortgage has the same interest rate over

5b. If inflation falls unexpectedly by 3%, what would likely happen
to the situation for a homeowner with an adjustable-rate
mortgage?

A borrower is offered a mortgage loan for $100,000 with an
