Answer the following questions on the quantity theory of money.

a) According to the quantity theory of money, what will happen to nominal GDP if the money supply increases by 5% and the velocity of money does not change?

b) What will happen to nominal GDP if, instead, the money supply decreases by 8% and the velocity does not change?

c) What will happen to nominal GDP if, instead, the money supply increases by 5% and the velocity decreases by 5%?

According to the quantity theory of money

% change in Velocity + % change in money supply = % change in Nominal GDP

a) Using the information,

5% + 0% = 5% change in Nominal GDP

Hence the nominal GDP rises by 5% if the money supply increases by 5% and the velocity of money does not change.

b) Using the information,

-8% + 0% = -8% change in Nominal GDP

Hence the nominal GDP falls by 5% if the money supply decreases by 8% and the velocity of money does not change

c) Using the information

5% - 5% = 0% change in Nominal GDP

Hence the nominal GDP does not change if, instead, the money supply increases by 5% and the velocity decreases by 5%
