RBA Glossary definition for Real interest rate

Real interest rate – The real interest rate refers to the cost of borrowing money (i.e. the nominal interest rate) net of inflation. It takes account of the fact that part of the nominal interest that borrowers pay to lenders represents compensation for anticipated inflation. The remaining �real� component better reflects the economic cost of borrowing and the return to lending.
