Question

Suppose that this year's money supply is $500 billion, nominal GDP is $10 trillion, and real GDP is $5 trillion.

The price level is _____, and the velocity of money is _____.

Suppose that velocity is constant and the economy's output of
goods and services rises by 3 percent each year. *Use this
information to answer the questions that follow.*

If the Fed keeps the money supply constant, the price level will
**(stay the same, rise by 3%, or fall by 3%)** , and
nominal GDP will **(stay the same, rise by 3%,rise by 6%,
fall by 6%, or fall by 3%)** .

True or False: If the Fed wants to keep the price level stable instead, it should keep the money supply unchanged next year.

True

False

If the Fed wants an inflation rate of 11 percent instead, it
should **(decrease or increase) ** the
money supply by ____%. (**Hint**: The quantity
equation can be rewritten as the following percentage change
formula: (Percentage Change in M)+(Percentage Change in
V)=(Percentage Change in P)+(Percentage Change in Y)Percentage
Change in M+Percentage Change in V=Percentage Change in
P+Percentage Change in Y.)

Answer #1

M x V = P x Y [and PxY = Nominal GDP]

% Change in M + % change in V = % Change in P + % Change in Y

(1) Plugging in values,

$500 billion x V = $10,000 billion (10 trillion)

**V = 20**

**P =** Nominal GDP / Real GDP = $10 trillion / $5
trillion = **2**

(2) When Y increases by 3%,

% Change in M + % change in V = % Change in P + % Change in Y

0 + 0 = % Change in P + 3%

% Change in P = - 3%

**Price level will fall by 3%.**

**Nominal GDP will stay the same** [Since % Change
in P + % Change in Y = % Change innominal GDP = 0]

(3) **FALSE**

To keep price level stable, Fed should increase money supply.

(4) When % Change in P = 11%,

% Change in M + 0 = 11% + 3%

% Change in M = 14%

Fed should **increase money supply by 14%.**

Suppose that initially the money supply is $1 trillion, the
price level equals 3, the real GDP is $5 trillion in base-year
dollars, and income velocity of money is 15. Then the money supply
increases by $100 billion, while real GDP and income velocity of
money remain unchanged. a. According to the quantity theory of
money and prices LOADING..., calculate the new price level after
the increase in money supply: nothing.

You are required to answer the following Questions:
1) What is the real value of output (Q)?
Now assume that the Fed increases the money supply by 10 percent
and velocity remains unchanged.
2) If the price level remains constant, by how much will real

True or False?
Suppose that the real interest rate is 3 percent. The money
supply is currently growing by 7 percent per year and real GDP is
growing by 2 percent per year. If the Fed permanently reduces the
growth rate of the money supply to 6 percent, the nominal interest
rate will fall to 1 percent. (Hint: Since the change in the money
growth rate is permanent, it will permanently change the inflation;
people will then adjust their expectations...
