PROBLEM SET 4 SOLUTIONS (1) Consider a closed economy with the following data: NKY=K = 100 NKMPN121=Labor supply is inelastic so that: N = 10000 The money market clearing condition is given by 0)(2002.01=+−=eerYPMππHigh powered money: H = 4000 Currency/deposit ratio: cu = 0.5 Reserve/deposit ratio: res = 0.5 a)Derive the FE line in this economy and compute the real wage Solution: Since labor supply is inelastic, we can plug N = 10000 and K = 100 into the equation for Y to get Y = 10000. This is the full employment output. The real wage is equal to MPN. Plugging in we get W/P = 1/2 b) Suppose that the IS curve is given byr = 10 - 0.0005Y. Derive the LM curve as a function of Yand H/P. [Express it in the form r = f(Y,H/P)] Hint: Use the formula HrescucuM++=11Solution: Set (1/1,000)M1/P = 0.0002Y - 0.2r and solve for r. By definition: HHrescucuM5.111=++=Hence the LM curve is given by the equation r = 0.001Y - 0.005M1/P or r = 0.001Y - 0.0075H/P
