Equation: RI Nominal= Inflation + k, whereby K stands for the real rate in interest.
Why do economists who believe in the quantity theory advocate monetary growth rules?
Because the monetarists believe in the supply of money determining primarily the nominal GDP in short run and price level in long run, they usually think that money control and supply should not be left in discretion of the bankers.
How does the balance of payments differ from the balance on goods and services?
