ch5(6e) sample 1. Suppose the marginal tax rate is 33%. A certain investment yields 0.2296 before taxes when expected and actual inflation = 0.05. What is the after-tax real rate? A. 0.0938 B. 0.1038 C. 0.1138 D. 0.1238 2. Suppose the marginal tax rate is 33%. A certain investment yields 0.2296 before taxes when expected and actual inflation = 0.05. Now suppose that actual and expected inflation increases to 0.10. If investors (irrationally) increase their required before-tax nominal return point for point with increases in expected inflation (i.e., using the approximation for of the Fisher equation R = r+i), what will be their after-tax real rate of return? A. 0.0573 B. 0.0673 C. 0.0773 D. 0.0873 3. Suppose the marginal tax rate is 33%. A certain investment yields 0.2296 before taxes when expected and actual inflation = 0.05. Now suppose that actual and expected inflation increases to 0.10. How much would the before-tax nominal rate of return have to increase in order to preserve the same after-tax real return that existed when inflation was 0.05? A. 0.0645 B. 0.0745 C. 0.0845 D. 0.0945
