Econ 302 HW #3 Ch. 4 Qiu Jin 4. a. (M/P)d=kY Assume the country is under equilibrium, then (M/P)d=( M/P)s average inflation rate=P= %growth in M / %growth in Y = 12/4=3% b. If %growth in M stays the same, Inflation rate will decrease, because they are in an inverse relation. c. MV=PY If all other conditions stay the same, the growth in V will expand inflation. 5. Printing own money: Pros: As soon as the small country print its own money, the government of the country can receive revenue. Cos: If the government print out too much more money than is needed, there will be inflation, or even hyperinflation.

(M/P)d=L(I,Y)=Y/(5i)=g b. 5i MV=PY so, M/P=Y/V=Y/(5i) V=5i c. g M(g)+V=P +Y 10. Increase in M leads to an increase inflation. Then nominal interest rate rises correspondingly. As a consequence, people now feel more risky of holding money. As a result, total money balance tends to fall. Since real money balance is part of wealth, real wealth also falls. Consumption will decline as well ,and, therefore, increases saving. This leads to a lower real interest rate. According to Fisher effect: i = r + In this case, since the real interest rate r falls, the change in inflation increases the nominal interest rate i by less than the change itself....
