Since the left hand side must equal the right hand side, nominal GDP (P*Y) will
not change. Prices will fall by 5%.
c. YPVM ×=×
If V is constant and Y is growing at 5% per year, then in order to keep P constant,
the Fed should increase M by 5%. This means setting M = \$525billion.
d. YPVM ×=×
If V is constant and Y is growing at 5% per year, then in order to have an increase
in P equal to 10%, the Fed should increase M by 15%. This means setting M =
\$575billion.
