Fisher hypothesis

Fisher hypothesis Definition

The Fisher hypothesis is the proposition by Irving Fisher that the real interest rate is independent of monetary measures, especially the nominal interest rate. The Fisher equation is

rr = rn − π.

This means, the real interest rate is the nominal rate minus inflation. Therefore, if rn rises, so must π.

If an economic theory or model has this property, it shows the Fisher effect
