The increase in aggregate demand increases both real GDP and the price level. However, in the long run, the shortage of labor brings a rise in the money wage rate so that the short-run aggregate supply decreases. This is the long-run adjustment mechanism we discussed in chapter 12. 26 This suggests that in the long run, a change in the quantity of money affects the price level but has no effect on real GDP. THE QUANTITY THEORY OF MONEY Let, M = quantity of money V = velocity of money ( average number of times each dollar in the money supply is used to purchase goods and services Included in GDP ) P = price level (the GDP deflator) Y = RGDP. Recall from chapter 7 that Nominal GDP = PY . P = NGDP/RGDP 27 In the 1920s, Irving Fisher formalized the connection between money and prices using the quantity equation (or called the equation of exchange, more common) which is, MV = PY The equation of exchange states that the quantity of money, M , multiplied by the velocity of circulation, V , equals GDP....
