  • ECON-HELP!! -

    % Change in M + % Change in V = % Change in P + % Change in Y.
    i.e, % Change in P = % Change in M + % Change in V – % Change in Y.

    % Change in P = 14% + 0% – 5% = 9%.
    % Change in P is the inflation rate π. From the Fisher equation, we have
    i = r + π,
    i is the nominal interest rate and r is the real interest rate. i is given as 11% in the problem, and we just calculated above that π is 9%. Hence, r is 2%
