**Putting it all together…**

Suppose the economy is currently suffering from a very high rate of inflation caused by aggregate demand that has increased beyond potential GDP. In a correctly labeled graph, show equilibrium in the money market. In a correctly labeled AD/AS graph, show the current short-run equilibrium in the macroeconomy. In response to this high inflation rate, should the Fed engage in expansionary or contractionary monetary policy? In your graph from part a), show the impact of this monetary policy in the money market and on the equilibrium interest rate. In your graph from part b), show the impact of this monetary policy on real GDP and the price level.

**Expansionary Monetary Policy**

Chain of Events: The Fed observes that the economy is in a recessionary gap. The Fed increases the money supply. The interest rate falls. Investment and consumption increase. AD shifts to the right. Real GDP increases, unemployment rate decreases, the aggregate price level rises.

**Contractionary Monetary Policy**

Chain of Events: The Fed observes that the economy is in a inflationary gap. The Fed decreases the money supply. The interest rate increases. Investment and consumption decrease. AD shifts to the left. Real GDP decreases, unemployment rate increases, the aggregate price level falls.

**Monetary Policy in Practice**

How does the Fed know what to aim for? One idea is the Taylor Rule: Federal Funds Rate target is based on inflation rate and output gap FFR = 1 + (1.5 × inflation rate) + (0.5 × output gap) Example: inflation = 3% and output gap = -4%

**Long-Run Impacts of Monetary Policy**

Ceteris Paribus: changes in the money supply will only result in changes in the aggregate price level Money Neutrality Percentage increase in money supply will equal percentage increase in aggregate price level Output and Employment will not change in the long run Basis of monetarism

**And Interest Rates Don’t Change**

As aggregate price level increases, households increase demand for money As a result, interest rates that fell in the short term will rise as demand catches up to supply
