The U.S. Treasury Market and Inflation-Protected Securities

The United States Department of the Treasury currently offers a special kind of security, called a Treasury Inflation-Protected Security (TIPS)*, whose principal amount is adjusted for inflation. The Treasury Department issues TIPS because it believes their issuance will reduce interest costs to the Treasury over the long term and will increase the different types of investors that buy their debt instruments.
