Posted by Anonymous on Sunday, October 2, 2011 at 1:01am.

You read in a newspaper that the nominal interest rate is 12 percent per year in Canada and 8 percent per year in the United States. Suppose that the real interest rates are equalized in the two countries and that purchasing-power parity holds.

a) Using the Fisher equation, what can you infer about expected inflation in Canada and in the United States?
b) What can you infer about expected change in the exchange rate between the Canadian dollar and the U.S. dollar?
c) A friend proposes a get-rich-quick scheme: borrow from a US bank at 8%, deposit the money in a Canadian bank at 12%, and make a 4% profit. What is wrong with this scheme?
