Monetary and Fiscal Policies (2066Q5): Explain precisely the concepts of money supply, high powered money and money multiplier and also identify the determinants of money supply.


Money Supply
Money Supply or Money Stock is the total amount of monetary assets available in an economy at a specific time. Money supply data are recorded and published, usually by the government or the central bank of the country. Public and private sector analysts have long monitored changes in money supply because of its effects on the price level, inflation, the exchange rate and the business cycle.

High Powered Money

1.     High Powered Money
2.     Low Powered Money

High Powered Money indicates the purchasing power of supply of money. The total purchasing power of people depends on the growth rate and quantity of total supply of money.

The increase in volume of money creates purchasing power in more or less degree. The increase in supply of money that generates more purchasing power is called high powered money.
