BUS668, Macroeconomics


Prepare calculations and a one to two page analysis, following the APA guidelines, that addresses the following:

Assuming that the expectations theory is the correct theory of the term structure, calculate the interest rates in the term structure for maturity. Next, plot the resulting yield curves for the following series of one-year interest rates over the next five years using both a and b.

a. 5%, 7%,7%, 7%, 7%
b. 5%, 4%, 4%,4%,4%

Lastly, interpolate how your yield curves would change if people preferred shorter-term bonds over long-term bonds. Disclose what the book suggests once the short-term rate is much cheaper than the long-term in interest rate. Substantiate whether or not that is a normal occurrence or a cause for alarm.
