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).
8. 0 1 2 $1,000 $2,000 Fig. 8. 60. 60 1 0 2 $1,000 $2,000 Fig. 9. 9 shows how to decompose Fig. 8. 03725 per year. However, there are two things wrong with this. 0745 by 2 we have computed a simple interest rate. Second, we have not taken into account that the $2,000 and the $1,000 are deposited at diﬀerent times. 0366. 0366. ) However, this technique does not take into account the second problem, namely, that the $2,000 was deposited at a diﬀerent time from the $1,000. 60 to $1,000 plus the discounted value of $2,000, namely 2000(1 + r)−1 .
