The Supply of Money
• In the United States, the Federal Reserve System is
the sole issuer of currency.
– This means the Fed has monopoly control over the
money supply.
• There are two important measures of the Money
Supply today.
– M1
– M2
M1
• M1 serves primarily as
a medium of
exchange. It includes:
– Currency and Coin
– Demand Deposits
M2
• M2 serves as a store
of value. It includes:
– The M1
– Time Deposits
– Money Market Mutual
Funds
– Overnight Eurodollars
M1 & M2
• As we go from M1 to M2
– The
measure becomes larger
– Money becomes less liquid
• As we go from M2 to M1
–The measure becomes smaller
– Money becomes more liquid
Time Value of Money
• Is a dollar today worth more than a dollar
tomorrow?
– YES
• Why?
– Opportunity cost & Inflation
– This is the reason for charging and paying interest
Time Value of Money
• Let v = future value of $
p = present value of $
r = real interest rate (nominal rate – inflation rate)
expressed as a decimal
n = years
k = number of times interest is credited per year
• The Simple Interest Formula
v = ( 1 + r )n * p
• The Compound Interest Formula
v = ( 1 + r/k )nk * p
Time Value of Money
Illustrated
• Assume that inflation is expected to be 3% and that the
•
nominal interest rate on simple interest savings is 1%.
Calculate the future value of $1 after 1 year.
Step 1: Calculate the real interest rate
r% = i% -
p%
r% = 1% - 3% = -2% or -.02
• Step 2: Use the simple interest formula to
calculate the future value of $1
v = ( 1 + r )n * p
v = ( 1 + (-.02))1 * $1
v = (.98) * $1
v = $0.98
Time Value of Money
Illustrated
• Assume that inflation is still expected to be 3% but that the
•
nominal interest rate on simple interest savings is 4%.
Calculate the future value of $1 after 1 year.
Step 1: Calculate the real interest rate
r% = i% -
p%
r% = 4% - 3% = 1% or .01
• Step 2: Use the simple interest formula to
calculate the future value of $1
v = ( 1 + r )n * p
v = ( 1 + .01)1 * $1
v = $1.01
Time Value of Money
FUN!!!
• Assume that annual inflation is expected to be 2.5% and that
•
the annual nominal interest rate on a 10 year certificate of
deposit is 5% compounded monthly. Calculate the future value
of $1,000 after 10 years.
Step 1: Calculate the real interest rate
r% = i% - p%
r% = 5% - 2.5% = 2.5% or .025
• Step 2: Use the compound interest formula to
calculate the future value of $1,000
v = ( 1 + r/k )nk * p
v=(1+
.025/ )10*12
12
* $1,000
v = ( 1 + 0.002083)120 * $1,000
v = $1,283.69
Relating Money to GDP
• Economist, Irving Fisher
postulated that :
Nominal GDP = The Money Supply *
Money’s Velocity
The Monetary Equation of
Exchange
• MV = PQ
–
–
–
–
M = money supply (M1 or M2)
V = money’s velocity (M1 or M2)
P = price level (PL on the AS/AD diagram)
Q = real GDP ( sometimes labeled Y on the AS/AD
diagram)
– P*Q or PQ = Nominal GDP
The Monetary Equation of
Exchange
• MV=PQ
– M1=$2 trillion
– V of M1 = 7
– PQ = $14 trillion
