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 4 percent each year. Use this information to answer the questions that follow.

If the Fed keeps the money supply constant, the price level will _______ (rise by 4%, stay the same, fall by 4%) , and nominal GDP will _______ (rise by 8%, fall by 4%, stay the same, rise by 4%, fall by 8%).

True or False: If the Fed wants to keep the price level stable instead, it should increase the money supply by 4% next year.

True

False

If the Fed wants an inflation rate of 9 percent instead, it should _______ (increase, decrease) 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 where (P x Y) = Nominal GDP

% Change in M + % Change in V = % Change in P (Inflation) + % Change in Y

(1)

Price level = Nominal GDP / Real GDP = 10 trillion / 5 trillion
= **2**

V = (P x Y) / M = 10 trillion / 0.5 trillion =
**20**

(2)

0% + 0% = % Change in P + 4%

% Change in P = - 4%

Price level will **fall by 4%.**

Nominal GDP **stay the same.**

(3) **True**

% Change in M + 0% = 0% + 4% = 4%

(4)

% Change in M + 0% = 9% + 4% = 13%

It should **increase** money supply by
**13%** (assuming Y increases by 4% as mentioned in
previous part).

Suppose the supply of money, measured by M1, is $3.2 trillion,
output, measured by real GDP, is $20.2 trillion, and the velocity
of money is 6.7. Suppose the supply of money increases to $4.1
trillion but GDP and the velocity of money do not change. What is
the percent by which prices change? Provide your answer as a
percentage rounded to two decimal places.

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.
