1. If a $1,000 bond pays $100 per year, the interest rate on the bond equals: $1,000 / $100 = $10 $100 $1,000 * $100 = $10,0000 1 percent. $100 / $1,000 = 10% 2. The amount of money you wish to hold, or your demand for money, depends on: How much income you would like to have. How much wealth you would like. How much of your financial assets you wish to hold in the form of money. All of the above. 3.

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. This person earns $1,000, spends $1,000 throughout the month, and buys a $500 bond at the beginning of the month only to sell it halfway through the month.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
