Find current nominal interest rate on treasury securities

Problem: Inflation-indexed bonds

Some bonds issued by the U.S. Treasury make payments indexed to inflation. These inflation-indexed bonds compensate investors for inflation. Therefore, the current interest rates on these bonds are real interest rates-interest rates in terms of goods. These interest rates can be used, together with nominal interest rates, to provide a measure of expected inflation. Let's see how.

Go to the Web site of the Federal Reserve Board and get the most recent statistical release listing interest rates. Find the current nominal interest rate on Treasury securities with a five-year maturity. Now find the current interest rate on "inflation indexed" Treasury securities with a five-year maturity. What do you think participants in financial markets think the average inflation rate will be over the next five years?

The response should include a reference list. Double-space, using Times New Roman 12 pnt font, one-inch margins, and APA style of writing and citations.
