A situation in which long-term 

Debt

 instruments have higher yields than short-term 

Debt

 instruments. This is the usual condition, and happens because investors 

Demand

 a higher 

Return

 for taking on the additional 

Risk

 of the longer-term investment. also called 

Normal yield curve
