  • Supply vs Demand applied to money

    I understand the supply side pretty well, but it is the demand side I struggle with. If the supply of money increases, you will get a dollar worth less and thus higher prices, as well as all of the negative effects of inflation (the business cycle, etc). But why would a decrease in the demand for money...

  • Is it possible to measure the demand for money, even approximately?

    Or even to ordinally measure if demand for money is increasing or decreasing? Prices are effected both by the supply and demand of money. The supply of money can be measured. But how is one to gauge the demand of money? For if the demand for money rises as the supply of money rises, prices would not...

  • Demand for money and business cycles

    ABCT holds that business cycles are caused by an increase in the supply of money. I understand the supply part of ABCT pretty well, but I do not understand how demand factors in. For example, wouldn't the decrease in the demand for money also cause business cycles? Why such a decrease not result...

  • two questions from an econimics newbie

    I am an economic layman, but I want to know more. I recently started reading Murray Rothbard's "What Has Government Done to Our Money?". I am about 50 pages in and there are two things that are confusing me. 1) In arguing that money must arise out of a free market process as opposed to...

  • What's wrong with this analysis? (More demand causes lower prices)

    Hi, Some economists are attributing the increased prices in Europe to increased demand from China. The following reply came to my mind: Is this even possible? Suppose the increase in prices is actually due to increased demand from the Chinese. But demand is supply . Demand is the stuff you offer in exchange...

  • 100% Inheritance Tax

    I was having an argument with someone about the Inheritance Tax. I'll just refer to him as my 'opponent' for this discussion. So my opponent was saying that capitalism ends up not being fair in the long run because when wealthy people die, they pass along their fortune to their kids, who...

  • Subsidy- Solar- Cell Phones

    Their subsidization of solar panel production is, believe it or not, has little or no impact on the pace of solar energy research and development. If they subsidized the production of cell phones, new faster, smaller, more reliable cell phones would still be coming out every year. The only difference...
