ECO 372 Week 3 Team Assignment Money and the Prices in the Long Run and Open Economies PRESENTATION


FOR MORE CLASSES VISIT www.eco372edu.com Money and the Prices in the Long Run and Open Economies

Purpose of Assignment Week 3 will help students develop an understanding of what money is, what forms money takes, how the banking system helps create money, and how the Federal Reserve controls the quantity of money. Students will learn how the quantity of money affects inflation and interest rates in the long run, and production and employment in the short run. Students will find that, in the long run, there is a strong relationship between the growth rate of money and inflation. Students will review the basic concepts macroeconomists use to study open economies and will address why a nation's net exports must equal its net capital outflow. Students will demonstrate the relationship between the prices and quantities in the market for loanable funds and the prices and quantities in the market for foreign-currency exchange.
