Abstract

The aim of this paper is to review some historical facts and properties of price indexed contracts. Price indexation has a long history. The economist Fisher states that price indexed loans are an intersting and competetively priced option. Some characteristics of price indexed contracts are reported. A brief comparison of the return of price indexed Icelandic government bonds and Canadian price indexed government bonds is shown.
