Introduction 11 Example 1.2 Consider again the nominal rate of interest, denoted i . This can more accurately be defined as the amount of money received over some interval of time divided by the capital outlay. Hence, i [ MT 1 ] [ M ] = [ T 1 ] Example 1.3 Consider the linear static model of demand and supply, given by the following equations. q d = a bp a , b > 0 q s = c + dp d > 0 q d = q s = q (1.4) with equilibrium price and quantity p = a c b + d , q = ad + bc b + d and with dimensions q d , q s [ QT 1 ] , p [ MQ 1 ] The model is a ﬂow model since q d and q s are defined as quantities per period of time. 4 It is still, however, a static model because all variables refer to time period t . Because of this we conventionally do not include a time subscript. Now turn to the parameters of the model. If the demand and supply equations are to be dimensionally consistent, then a , c [ QT

Consider just the demand equation and suppose it takes the 4 We could have considered a stock demand and supply model, in which case q d and q s would have dimension [ Q ]. Such a model would apply to a particular point in time....
