# a 5-year treasury bond has a 5% yield. a 10-year treasury bond

This answer was rated:
a 5-year treasury bond has a 5% yield. a 10-year treasury bond has a 6% yield. a 10-year corporate bond has an 8% yield. the market expects that inflation will average 2.5% over the next 10 years (IP10=2.5%). Assume that there is no maturity risk premium (MRP=0), and that the annual real risk-free rate of interest, r*, will remain constant over the next 10 years. What does the market expect that inflation will average over the next five years? A 5-year corporate bond has the same default risk premium and liquidity premium as the 10-year corporate bond described above. What is the yield on this 5-year corporate bond?

Hi there- Can you tell me what does the market expect that inflation will average over the next five years?

I JUST PAID FOR THIS AND REALIZED--- YOU DIDN'T ANSWER THE PROBLEM CORRECTLY. IF YOU NOTE, I AM LOOKING FOR A 5% YIELD. YOU ANSWERED THE PROBLEM WITH A 5.2% YIELD. PLEASE ADVISE AS TO THE CORRECT ANSWER--- THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

I cannot believe it I made this mistake!! It is because I have your book and had answered the same problem before, but the interest was 5.2% instead of 5%. I truely apologize for this mistake, just allow me a couple of minutes and I will post the correct solution, in the meantime, since you have the steps, try working out the problem at the same time so that you can compare it to my answer and see if you get the steps. Again, sorry about that (and thank you for the accept)
