Now that we have also studied the monetary side of the economy it is appropriate for us to investigate a perturbation of the real interest rate model that does not exhibit this property. Recall that our original model was summarized in two equations—the demand for and supply of loanable funds as functions of the real interest rate— and MœMÐ<Ñ WœWÐ<Ñœ] -Ð] Xß<ÑKÞ 
