2 Conclusion: MS r is unchanged and Y . MS Y Monetary policy is most effective (has a largest effect on Y) when investment is completely interest-elastic. Y 2 Since the I is completely interest elastic, a small drop in interest rate has a largest effect on I and therefore, on Y.

Since the I is interest elastic, an increase in interest rate causes a larger C-O effect. As a result, FP is less effective (only a small increase in Y). Y 2 D

MS Y (a larger increase in Y) Monetary policy is effective (has a large effect on Y) when money demand is interest-inelastic. Since the MD is interest inelastic, a large drop in interest rate is required to reequilibrate the money market after the increase in the money stock. As a consequence, I & Y increase by a greater amount.
