PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a complete lesson plan about how monetary policy can help stabilize the economy. By altering the money supply, the Fed can fight recession or inflation. To illustrate the short-run and long-run effects of monetary policy, the lesson focuses on the relationship between the money market, the AS-AD model, and the loanable funds market. It is the second of two lessons on Monetary Policy; the other lesson can be found here. (This lesson is also part of a larger unit on The Financial Sector.)
