What are the assumptions and predictions of the simple quantity theory of money? Does the simple quantity theory of money predict well?

Expert Solution
To determine

The assumptions and predictions of simple quantity theory of money.

Explanation of Solution

The quantity theory of money assumes that the velocity and output remains constant. When this assumption holds good, there exists a proportional link between the changes in money supply and the changes in prices. However, it is evident that in the real world, a strictly proportional relationship between the money supply and the price level do not exist. However, there is a strong direct relationship between the changes in money supply and prices. Thus, the quantity theory is capable of predict to an extent.
