In fact, it is precisely through observation and the proper reworking of the probability distribution that financial products are engineered. 4, the probability distribution is constructed and the fair price of a bond is calculated, with a maturity of two years and paying four semi-annual coupons, based on the dynamics of our interest rate. As we can see, with the exception of the numbers of coupons considered, nothing changes in the valuation procedure previously described. In fact, in correspondence to a certain number of possibilities of the interest rate (first panel), we have different probability distributions for the four coupons every 6 months (second panel); adding these coupons and the principal returned at maturity, we obtain the probability distribution of the bond.
However, a debt exists since it has been inherited from the past. It’s not so difficult to argue that under this hypothesis the debt dynamics are influenced only by the interest burden; for example, if at a given year the debt is equal to €2,000 billion and its servicing cost is €100 billion, the year after the debt will grow to €2,100 billion. Hence, if the interest rates are positive, the public debt tends to grow indefinitely over time. At first glance one could think that this phenomenon should increase the debt amount up to a level to be considered unsustainable, and it should trigger soon or later the state’s default.
With many rates possible, many coupon values are possible. 50, twice there is a coupon of €2 and on two other occasions the coupon exceeds €2. indd 03/18/2016 Page 3 Trim: 170 x 244 mm 3 The Building Blocks of the Single European Currency What is happening is that not all levels of the rate can be reached with the same probability. 70 instead of €5. 2). The bell-shaped curves which represent the probability distribution contain a wealth of information on the bond that we purchased from Bank A: studying this, we can now say that it is very probable (90% represented by the central and lower areas) that the coupon that will be cashed will not be greater than €2 (total investment of €102); at the same time there is reasonable certainty, more than 90% (central and upper areas) that my coupon will not be less than €1 (total investment of €101).
