Unformatted text preview: Longrun Inflation: In longrun equilibrium: ( ) / ( ) ( , ( )) o M t P t L i Y t = , where the M(t) indicates that the variable is changing continuously over time. The subscript zero denotes a variable that is constant at a given longrun equilibrium. Taking the derivative of the above with respect to time one gets 2 ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) dM t dP t M t dL dY dt P t dt P t dY dt = Now multiply the LHS by P/M and the right hand side by 1/L , since these two quantities are equal in equilibrium: 2 ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) 1 ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) dM t dP t M t P t dL dY dt P t dt P t M t dY dt L dM t dP t dL dY dL dY Y M t dt P t dt LdY dt LdY dt Y dL dM t dP t YdL dY dY L dY M t dt P t dt LdY Ydt Ydt Y  =  = =  = = Now all of the variables of the form dX/X are growth rates, and the quotient of two...
