Section Numbe Recitation Leader’s Name: Homework 8, Due April 9 at the beginning of class 1. Suppose the money demand function is given by
Md/P = 750 + .2Y— 4000(r + Cite)
Suppose that the central bank changes the money supply based on the actual inﬂation rate and /40 the level of income:
Ms = 2455 +.1Y— 300091. a. If the actual rate of inﬂation equals the expected rate of inﬂation equals .04, Y = 1150

expected to remain constant over the next year. The rate of inﬂation has been zero for several years. /20 (a) If the central bank wants zero inﬂation over the next year, what growth rate of the
nominal money supply should it choose? (b) By how much will velocity change over the next year if the central bank follows the policy
that achieves zero inﬂation? NV :?\/ ’50 2mm ramV :QOAP+670AK/
