Quantity Equation In the economics, the relationship between money circulation and transac- tions is expressed by the following Quantity Equation: M ° V = P ° Y where M: money stock or money supply; V: velocity of money circulation; P: price level(eg. CPI); Y: real GDP. It is very bene°cial to read the example on p.84. Several points to mark: a. we always assume a constant velocity( V ) which depends mainly on the institution of an economy; b. keep in mind, Y is the real GDP; c. IMPORTANT, the quantity equation has a famous derivative equation: g M + g V = g P + g Y where g M : growth rate(percentage change rate) of money supply; g V : growth rate(percentage change rate) of velocity; g P : growth rate(percentage change rate) of price level( g P is just the In±ation Rate ° ); g Y : growth rate(percentage change rate) of real GDP; Examples: suppose the money supply last year is 100. The Fed, however, has increased the supply to 150 this year. What is the growth rate of money supply between
