Assume that at the beginning of the year, the pound’s value is in equilibrium. Assume that over the year the British inflation rate is 6 percent, whereas the U.S. inflation rate is 4 percent. Assume that any change in the pound’s value due to the inflation differential has occurred by the end of the year. Using this information and the information provided in question 1, determine how the pound’s value changed over the year.
