Inflation Premium
Default Risk Premium
Write an essay of no more than 1 page, that summarizes the role of the Federal Reserve Bank in setting interest rates.
Work the following Problems.
Suppose 1-year T-bills currently yield 7.00% and the future inflation rate is expected to be constant at 3.20% peryear. What is the real risk-free rate of return, r*? Disregard any cross-product terms, i.e., if averaging is required,use the arithmetic average.
Suppose the real risk-free rate is 3.50% and the future rate of inflation is expected to be constant at 2.20%. Whatrate of return would you expect on a 1-year Treasury security, assuming the pure expectations theory is valid?Disregard cross-product terms, i.e., if averaging is required, use the arithmetic average.
Suppose 10-year T-bonds have a yield of 5.30% and 10-year corporate bonds yield 6.75%. Also, corporate bondshave a 0.25% liquidity premium versus a zero liquidity premium for T-bonds, and the maturity risk premium on bothTreasury and corporate 10-year bonds is 1.15%. What is the default risk premium on corporate bonds?
Suppose the real risk-free rate is 3.00%, the average expected future inflation rate is 2.25%, and a maturity riskpremium of 0.10% per year to maturity applies, i.e., MRP = 0.10%(t), where t is the number of years to maturity.What rate of return would you expect on a 1-year Treasury security, assuming the pure expectations theory is NOTvalid? Disregard cross-product terms, i.e., if averaging is required, use the arithmetic average.
