Suppose that the current 1-year rate (1-year spot rate) and expected 1-year T-bill rates over the following three
years (i.e., years 2, 3, and 4, respectively) are as follows:
1R1 = 3.22%, E(2r1) = 4.65%, E(3r1) = 5.15%, E(4r1) = 6.65%
Using the unbiased expectations theory, calculate the current (long-term) rates for 1-, 2-, 3-, and 4-year-maturity Treasury securities. Plot the resulting yield curve
