Expected rate of inflation

Expected rate of inflation

The public's expectations for inflation. These expectations determine how large an effect a given policy action by the Fed will have on economic activity.

Expected Rate of Inflation

Investor and public expectations of current or future inflation. These expectations may or may not be rational, but they may affect how the market reacts to changes in target interest rates. For example, the market usually responds well to a cut in interest rates, but if investors expect inflation to go higher in the near future and the Federal Reserve cuts rates, the market may not react positively.

The real interest rate - that is, the nominal interest rate minus the expected rate of inflation - is in turn determined in the long run by structural factors, such as savings and investment.
Meanwhile, the median SPF projection for the 5-year/5-year-forward PCE inflation rate (the average expected rate of inflation over the five-year period that begins five years from today) has been relatively stable since 2014:Q2 and, at 2.1 percent, currently matches the Blue Chip Economic Indicators consensus for the 5-year/5-year-forward rate of growth in the GDP Chained Price Index.
Proposition 1 The investment demand function [k.sub.t] characterized by condition (9) is increasing in (i) the expected return to capital investment (x); (ii) the expected rate of inflation ([p.sub.t+1]/[p.sub.t]); and (iii) the interest rate on reserves ([R.sup.m]).

(7) My early work on inflation-indexed bonds with John Campbell formulates an affine two-factor term structure model in which one factor is the log real interest rate and the other the log expected rate of inflation. An estimation of the model using nominal bond yields and realized inflation for the US shows that both factors exhibit substantial persistence and variability over the post-World War II period.
"Most of the late-August gain was due to more favorable income expectations, with consumers expecting the largest income gains in nearly five years, although the median expected increase was just 0.9 percent, less than the expected rate of inflation," survey director Richard Curtin said in a statement.
