A Simple Model of GDP Growth ∆ ln Y t = a + b ∆ ln M t + e t , where: - Y is real GDP; - M is the money stock; - e t reflects all other factors affecting growth; - a and b are parameters; - denotes change; - ln denotes natural log.

Estimating the Parameters of the Model Using a Regression ∆ ln Y t = a + b ∆ ln M t + e t . - Choose a and b to fit the data as well as possible. - That is, so a + b ln M t is on average as close as possible to ln Y t . - This is an “ordinary least squares” (or “OLS”) regression.

    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.
