23.2 Essay Questions
1) George has total wealth of $50,000. He allocates $40,000 to Treasury bills yielding 6% and $10,000 to a NOW account yielding 3%. What value does George place on his checkable deposits? What if the yield on T-bills rises to 12%?
2) Irving Fisher originally described velocity using transactions, rather than income or output. Would velocity calculated using transactions be a larger or a smaller number than velocity calculated using national income or GDP? Why do economists use income or output, rather than transactions, when calculating velocity? Under what circumstances might it matter how velocity is defined?
3) Why do economists and policy-makers view fluctuations in velocity as a problem? What action did the Fed take in the late 1990s that was related to uncertainty about the behavior of velocity?
4) Which model of the demand for real balances discussed in this chapter relies solely on the transactions motive? Is this model able completely to explain observed movements in real balances? Briefly explain why or why not.
