The Dependence of the Price Level on the Expansion of the Money Supply in Closed Economies

  • Chapter


The specialisation of an economic model, created for open economies by Dornbusch in 1976, implies that a sudden expansion of the money supply makes the time path exponentially approach the higher steady-state level. This model was modified several times, but all modifications imply the typically exponential approach that does not fit empiric data. So we study models containing a time delay of the rate of inflation and get results which are more realistic.
