“A monetarist investigator might say that the sewer flow of 6,000 gallons an hour consisted of an average of 200 gallons in the sewer at any one time with a complete turnover of the water 30 times every hour.”1 Interpret this statement using the equation of exchange.

To determine

The interpretation of statement using the equation of exchange.

Explanation of Solution

The equation of exchange (quantity theory of money) is expressed as MV=PQ, where M indicates the money supply, V indicates velocity, P indicates the general price level, and Q is the aggregate output.

In the given situation, the average gallon of water is equal to M and the turnover of water is considered velocity. The total flow indicates PQ
