Suppose that velocity is constant and the economy's output of goods and services rises by 4 percent each year. Use this information to answer the questions that follow.
If the Fed keeps the money supply constant, the price level will    , and nominal GDP will    .

True or False: If the Fed wants to keep the price level stable instead, it should keep the money supply unchanged next year.
True

False

If the Fed wants an inflation rate of 9 percent instead, it should    the money supply by

Step 1

Since we answer only up to 3 sub-parts, we are answering the first three. If you want to get answered for the other sub-part as well then kindly post the question again.

It is given that the money supply is \$600 billion, nominal GDP is \$15 trillion and the real GDP is \$3 trillion.

a. The price level can be calculated by the formula given below:

Step 2

The velocity of money can be calculated by the following formula:

Step 3

b. If Fed keeps the money supply constant, the price level will fall and the nominal GDP will remain unchanged...
