Using models of corporate bonds for fixed income investments (FII's) and sustained yield forests for variable income investments (VII's), this analysis demonstrates how inflation can shift income of new FII's toward the present, relative to income of VII's with the same internal rate of return. This shortened payback period is accompanied by a reduced present value for FII's when investment internal rate of return exceeds the guiding rate of interest. A relative disadvantage of debt financing for VII's during inflation is illustrated. Forest Sci. 29:149-159.
