Inflation: Its causes and effects Velocity  Basic concept: the rate at which money circulates  Definition: the number of times the average dollar bill changes hands in a given time period  Example: In 2015,  $500 billion in transactions  money supply = $100 billion  The average dollar is used in five transactions in 2015  So, velocity = 5  This suggests the following definition: where V = velocity T = value of all transactions M = money supply  Use nominal GDP as a proxy for total transactions. Then, where P = price of output (GDP deflator) Y = quantity of output (real GDP) P × Y = value of output (nominal GDP The quantity equation  The quantity equation M × V = P × Y follows from the preceding definition of velocity.  It is an identity: it holds by definition of the variables.  M/P = real money balances, the purchasing power of the money supply.  A simple money demand function: d (M/P ) = k Y where k = how much money people wish to hold for each dollar of income. (k is exogenous) d  Money demand: (M/P ) = k Y  Quantity equation: M × V = P × Y  The connection between them: k = 1/V  When people hold lots of money relative to their incomes (k is large), money changes hands infrequently (V is small).
