Due to a recession, expected inflation this year is only 2%. However, the inflation rate in Year 2 and thereafter is expected to be constant at some level above 2%. Assume that expectations theory holds and the real risk-free rate is r* = 2.25%. If the yield on 3-year Treasury bonds equals the 1-year yield plus 2.75%, what inflation rate is expected after Year 1? Round your answer to two decimal places.
