3/23/11 T-bill Why is the T-bill return independent of the  economy?   Do T-bills promise a completely risk-free return? T-bills will return the promised 5.5%, regardless of  the economy. No, T-bills do not provide a completely risk-free  return, as they are still exposed to inflation.   Although, very little unexpected inflation is likely to  occur over such a short period of time. T-bills are also risky in terms of reinvestment rate  risk. T-bills are risk-free in the default sense of the word. 78-
