4. A respected economist recently predicted that even though Japanese inﬂation would not rise, Japanese interest rates would rise consistently over the next 5 years.

Its vice president stated, “I’m not concerned about the prediction because we issued ﬁxed rate bonds and are therefore insulated from risk.” Do you agree? Explain.
