Md = 5,000 – 10,000r + 5Y
Md is money demand, r is the real interest rate, and Y is aggregate income.
a) Why does the equation have a negative value for the second term and a positive
value for the third term?
b) Suppose that the equilibrium interest rate is 30% (r = 0.3). Calculate money
Suppose Y = 5,000. At the existing interest rate, there is an excess (demand/supply) of
c) What will be the new equilibrium interest rate?
d) How much must the money supply increase to restore the original interest rate
