INFLATION PREMIUM: The difference between the nominal interest rate and the real interest rate. The role of the inflation premium is, quite simply, to adjust the interest rate for inflation. The nominal interest rate (the one on the loan contract) includes a real interest rate needed by the lender and a surcharge equal to the expected inflation rate used to maintain the purchasing power of the future payments. This expected inflation rate is the inflation premium.

SELF CORRECTION, RECESSIONARY GAP

The automatic process in which the aggregate market eliminates a recessionary gap created by a short-run equilibrium that is less than full employment through decreases in wages (and other resource prices). The self-correction mechanism is triggered by short-run resource market imbalances that are closed by long-run price flexibility. The self-correction process of the aggregate market also acts to close an inflationary gap with higher wages (and other resource prices).
