Shortening debt maturity reduces the agency cost of borrowing in two ways.(2) First, the increase in equity value from increasing the risk of the firm's assets is a decreasing function of debt maturity ...
The company or other entity issuing the security is called the issuer. A country's regulatory structure determines what qualifies as a security. For example, private investment pools may have some features of securities, but they may not be registered or regulated as such if they meet various restrictions. Securities may be represented by a certificate or, more typically, "non-certificated", that is in electronic or "book entry" only form. Certificates may be bearer , meaning they entitle the holder to rights under the security merely by holding the security, or registered , meaning they entitle the ...
Important Bond Features
If you are new to the site, welcome. You may want to first read my page on "Navigating The Blog". I hope you enjoy the posts. Thanks for visiting! To date we have mainly considered bond examples using plain vanilla debt instruments. That is, debt with a par value in the investor’s domestic currency, a fixed term to maturity, and a consistent coupon rate.  But bonds may also vary from this simple structure. There may be features incorporated into the debt terms that affect the issue. These features may significantly impact the debt issue and returns to investors. Bond features are extremely important to bear in mind ... market research, surveys and trends

Which of the following statement regarding bond prices and yields ...
Gee, maybe instead of posting the question from your Online Macroeconomics Class (Mankiw Principles of Micro 5th edition), you could do it yourself.

A bond is debt issued by a federal, state or local government agency or a private company. When you buy a bond, you effectively loan money to the bond issuer, and the issuer promises to repay it with interest over the term of the loan. At the end of the term, you get your principal back.
