A note on real short-term interest rates

Quarterly Bulletin 1983 Q4
Published on 01 December 1983

It is frequently claimed that real interest rates are now historically high. But comparing recent levels with those for just the 1970s is likely to be misleading. This note, therefore, gives longer runs of various series. It presents estimates of pre-tax and post-tax real short-term interest rates facing different categories of lenders and borrowers in the United Kingdom, the United States and Germany.
