Fisher Effect

Back to Glossary

The Fisher hypothesis is an economic theory that investigates and describes the correlation between inflation and interest rates. Invented by economist Irving Fisher, the equation proposes that the real interest rate equals the nominal interest rate minus the expected inflation rate. The way this translates in real life is that real interest rates and inflation pull in opposite directions unless nominal interest rates mirror the behaviour and direction of inflation.
