Final equilibrium: r 1 , Y 1 Conclusion: MS r and Y . MS Y (but only a smaller increase in Y) Monetary policy is less effective (has a small effect on Y) when money demand is interest-elastic. Since the MD is interest elastic, a small 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 smaller amount.

MS Y (a largest increase in Y) Monetary policy is most effective (has a largest effect on Y) when money demand is completely 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. However, MD is not affected by r. The only way to reequilibrate the money market is to increase Y to Y 1 .
Monetary Policy Effectiveness & the Slope of the LM Curve (d) Completely interest-elastic money demand LM 0 IS 0 = LM 1 E r Y 0 = Y 1 Y r 0 Suppose that MS (expansionary MP) while P unchanged. MS LM curve shifts rightward (from LM 0 to LM 1 ). Final equilibrium: r 0 , Y 0 Conclusion: MS Y unchanged Conclusion: MS Y unchanged Monetary policy is most ineffective (has no effect on Y) when money demand is completely interest-elastic. Since the MD is completely interest elastic, an increase in the MS does not change the r (i.e. liquidity trap). As a consequence, I & Y will remain unchanged.

As a consequence, I & Y decline by a smaller amount (i.e. smaller C-O effect).Y 2 D

As a consequence, I & Y decline by a greater amount (greater C-O effect). Y 2 D
