Three Components of Interest Rate

Real Interest Rate (2%4%). This would be the amount a lender would charge if there were no possibilities of default and no expectation of inflation.


Expected Inflation (0%?). Lenders recognize that in an inflationary economy, they are being paid back with less valuable dollars. As a result, they increase their interest rate to compensate for this loss in purchasing power. When inflationary expectations are high, interest rates are high.


Credit Risk Premium (0%5%). The government has little or no credit risk (i.e., risk of nonpayment) when it issues bonds. A business enterprise, however, depending upon its financial stability, profitability, etc., can have a low or a high credit risk.


Real Interest Rate + Expected Inflation + Credit Risk Premium = Interest Rate.
