Suppose that the yield curve shows that the one year bond yield is 6 percent the two year yield is 5 percent and the three year yield is 5 percent Assume that the risk premium on the one year bond

Suppose that the yield curve shows that the one-year bond yield is 6 percent, the two-year yield is 5 percent, and the three-year yield is 5 percent. Assume that the risk premium on the one-year bond is zero, the risk premium on the two-year bond is 1 percent, and the risk premium on the three-year bond is 2 percent.

a. What are the expected one-year interest rates next year and the following year?

The expected one-year interest rate next year = %

The expected one-year interest rate the following year = %

b. If the risk premiums were all zero, as in the Expectations Hypothesis, what would the slope of the yield curve be?
