Review Sheet for Mini Exam 4 Expect a couple of multiple choice questions from chapter 5 (open economy). A graphing question from chapter 5 is also a possibility. Expect multiple choice and open ended questions from chapter 7 (money market). You should be familiar with the equations and be able to derive the growth rate equations. Here are some practice problems: 1. Suppose real money demand is L = 0.8 Y – 100,000 ( r + π e ). If the nominal money supply is 12,000, real output is 15,000, the real interest rate is .02, and the expected inflation rate is .01, then the price level is__________? 2. If the nominal money supply doubles while real money demand is unchanged, what happens to the price level?
