48, but is given by P0 (1 − iinf )n . Show that these people predict a value that is always lower than the correct one when −1 < iinf < 1. 12. If P0 is placed in an interest bearing account at an annual effective rate of ieff , if the annual inflation rate is iinf , and if the annual tax rate is t, then what is the after-tax after-inflation rate of interest? 13. A function f (x) on an interval I is said to be convex on I if for every p ∈ (0, 1) and every x, y ∈ I, the function f (x) satisfies5 f (px + (1 − p)y) ≤ pf (x) + (1 − p)f (y).

10 The interest rate per period is i = i(m) /m. We want to find a formula for the future value Pn , and we do this by looking at n = 1, n = 2, and so on, hoping to see a pattern. 2, which is explained as follows. 2.

How much does Tom have to invest per year to have the same amount of money as Wendy when she retires? 8. Tom buys a stock for $50 and a year later it is worth $100, so the return on Tom’s investment for that year is 100%. A year later the stock is worth $50, so the return on Tom’s investment for the second year is −50%. Tom claims that the average return on his investment per year over the two year period is (100 + (−50)) /2 = 25%. Comment on this claim. 9. What is the IRR that corresponds to a simple interest investment rate of 20% over 5 years?
