Nominal rate is approximately the real rate plus inflation… this is your total interest rate for the purposes of things like capital allocation cash flow discounting.

Yes Nominal. The condensed format is: Rate of return= Real risk free + inflation premium + risk premium

Real Interest rates= Nominal Interest rates - inflation But now we are moving on the economics session :slight_smile:
