Treasury bills and Treasury notes are an investment security issued by the U.S. government. A Treasury bill matures within one year and investors typically roll over the matured Treasury bill and purchase another Treasury bill the same day. Treasury notes have maturities of up to 10 years.

Current interest rates are expected to increase. Would you invest in the Treasury bill or Treasury note? Discuss your reasoning.
