Chapter 6 Problem Solutions 6-3 r* = 3%; I 1 = 2%; I 2 = 4%; I 3 = 4%; MRP = 0; r T2 = ?; r T3 = ? r = r* + IP + DRP + LP + MRP. Since these are Treasury securities, DRP = LP = 0. r T2 = r* + IP 2 . IP 2 = (2% + 4%)/2 = 3%. r T2 = 3% + 3% = 6%. r T3 = r* + IP 3 . IP 3 = (2% + 4% + 4%)/3 = 3.33%. r T3 = 3% + 3.33% = 6.33%. 6-12 First, calculate the inflation premiums for the next three and five years, respectively. They are IP 3 = (2.5% + 3.2% + 3.6%)/3 = 3.1% and IP 5 = (2.5% + 3.2% + 3.6% + 3.6% + 3.6%)/5 = 3.3%. The real risk-free rate is given as 2.75%. Since the default and liquidity premiums are zero on Treasury bonds, we can now solve for the maturity risk premium. Thus, 6.25% = 2.75% + 3.1% + MRP 3 , or MRP 3 = 0.4%. Similarly, 6.8% = 2.75% + 3.3% + MRP 5 , or MRP 5 = 0.75%. Thus, MRP 5 – MRP 3 = 0.75% – 0.40% = 0.35%. 6-18 a.
