Question

what is inflation and real interest rates

Answer #1

Inflation is the rate in which the price of the commodity or products is rising and the purchasing power is decreasing , Inflation can be measured by

Change in inflation = (final cost price index value/ initial cost price index value), a average level of inflation is needed in the market because to reduce oversaving among the people and to flow money in the market for a good economy

Real interest rate

This interest rate adjust with inflation , to be specific

Real interest rate = nominal interest rate - inflation (it can be actual or expected), this rate will reflect the borrower and lender in the market, since inflation is not fixed the real interest rates is made on future inflation , the real interest rate will provide how much return the lender will get.

Inflation, nominal interest rates, and real rates. From 1991
to 2000, the U.S. economy had an annual inflation rate of around
2.17%. The historical annual nominal risk-free rate for this same
period was around 4.96%. Using the approximate nominal interest
rate equation and the true nominal interest rate equation, compute
the real interest rate for that decade.
What is the estimated real interest rate using the approximate
nominal interest rate equation for that decade?

a. What is realised real interest rate? Can a change in expected
inflation rate affect the realised real interest rate? Explain.
b. Suppose that there is an increase in expected inflation rate
from 3 percent to 6 percent. Given that the after-tax expected real
interest rate remains unchanged at 2 percent and the tax rate is 30
percent, find the original and the new nominal interest rates.

The real interest rate is 2% and the nominal interest rate is
3%, what is expected inflation?

ch 5 What is The impact of inflation on interest rates.

Determinants of Interest Rates
The real risk-free rate is 3%. Inflation is expected to be 2%
this year, 4% next year, and then 4% thereafter. The maturity risk
premium is estimated to be 0.0003 x (t - 1), where t = number of
years to maturity. What is the nominal interest rate on a 7-year
Treasury security? Do not round intermediate calculations. Round
