11 is the interest elasticity of European money demand, with 11 > O. And k is a shift parameter, with k > O. The message of equation (11) is that a 1 percent increase in European income causes a 1 percent increase in European money demand. Similarly, a 1 percent increase in the price of European goods causes a 1 percent increase in European money demand. And a 1 percent increase in the world interest rate causes an 11 percent decrease in European money demand. Equation (12) is the money supply function of Europe.

And equation (17) has it that, in the steady state, the world interest rate is constant. This is a natural assumption as well. Now the static model will be restated in terms of growth rates. In equation (1), all terms except qeP2Y2 / PI grow at the rate YI . As a consequence, qeP2Y2 / PI grows at the rate Yl too. This implies: (18) In equation (2), all terms except qPl Yl / eP2 grow at the rate consequence, qPIYI / eP2 grows at the rate Y2 too. This implies: Y2. As a (19) Of course, equations (18) and (19) are identical.

Strictly speaking, the objective of the central bank is to keep inflation at target level. Then what monetary policy is needed? To illustrate this, take a numerical example. Let target inflation be 1 percent, let productivity growth be 2 percent, and let labour growth be I percent. Then, what rate of money growth is required? Besides, what is the ensuing growth of nominal wages? What is the nominal interest rate, and what is the real interest rate? The model can be characterized by a system of three equations: 24 M: = p+ Y (1) Y=a+N (2) (3) Here P denotes the target rate of inflation.
