TIPs are U.S. Treasury bonds that pay a fixed interest rate
(currently over 3.5%) IN ADDITION TO adjusting the principal
for inflation. You can buy them in 10-year or 30-year
issues, and they pay interest each 6 months. They are
negotiable, and they are just like the regular 10-year
and 30-year treasuries except the nominal interest rate
is lower to compensate for the fact that the principal
increases each year with inflation. They are better
than the savings bond form that recently came out.
