Find its e ect on s * , the price level, the deposit-to-currency ratio, the money multiplier, the total nominal money stock, capital, and output. Explain each of these e ects. Verify that the model economy displays a correlation between the nominal money stock and real output. Will a one-time increase in the monetary base cause an increase in real output? Answer Consumers decide whether holding money or depositing accoding to the following inequality: r- s i n z Then, if decreases, depositing in the bank account gives you higher rate of return. So, if increases, the total amount of deposit in the banks H t increases. The deposit-to-currency ratio, H t Q t increases though H t + Q t doesn't change. (So, Q t decreses) p t = 1 v t = M t Q t + H t increases as decreases since the reserve requirement < 1 , and H t Q t increases keeping H t + Q t as constant. ( Q t + H t < ). That is, in the denominator of the price equation, the amount of increase of H t is less than the amount of decrease of Q t . The money multiplier is de ned as M 1 t M t = p t ( Q t + H t ) M t , and it increases as decreases since p t increases and H t + Q t is constant. As H t increases, investment, I t , increases. Then, Y t = C t + I t + G t also increases. If increases, both M 1 t = p t ( Q t + H t ) and Y t increase, so, they are observed as a positive correlation in this economy....
