Question

If a country increases its money supply by 2%, and its
*nominal GDP* increases by 3%, what can you say about what
happened to the velocity of money in this country?

Group of answer choices

We cannot tell which way it changed.

It decreased.

It increased.

It did not change.

None of the other options.

Answer #1

The velocity of money is given by the formula:

Velocity of money = Nominal GDP / Money supply

Let's assume initial Nominal GDP = x and money supply = y

Change in money supply = 2%

Thus, new money supply = 1.02x

Change in nominal GDP = 3%

New Nominal GDP = 1.03x

Original Velocity of money = Nominal GDP / Money supply = x/y

New velocity of money = New Nominal GDP / New Money supply = (1.03x / 1.02x) = 1.009 (x/y) > x/y

Thus, the Velocity of money will increase.

**2nd option is the correct answer.**

Nominal GDP increases from $5 trillion to $5.5 trillion
while the price level increases by 10%. Has real income
increased?
Nominal GDP increases from $6 trillion to $6.8 trillion
while real GDP increases from $6 trillion to $6.2 trillion. What
happened to the price level?
Nominal GDP increases from $7 trillion to $8 trillion
while real GDP increases from $7 trillion to $7.5 trillion. By what
percent did real income change?
