The model of optimal money balances, which explains the rationale for holding money during a given month, makes the following assumption(s): Spending occurs at a uniform rate. The same amount is spent each day. Spending is exactly equal to income for the month. Income arrives only once a month, at the beginning of the month. Only two types of assets are available to households: bonds and money. All of the above. 4. Refer to the graph below. How does this person manage his money balances? This person earns $1,000, spends $500 throughout the month, and saves the rest (or buys a $500 bond). This person earns $1,000, spends $500 throughout the month, and buys a $250 bond.
