pochuevalex What is financial innvation?? Can someone explian?
lavalyn Financial innovation is the development of new financial instruments. Credit cards, for example, reduce money held, since people hold demand lines of credit easily. Money market accounts reduce demand deposits.
8thlegend Why wouldn't people hold onto money if the price level is too high?
smarkheim "If the price of a product increases (decreases), then at any interest rate, the quantity of money demanded increases (decreases)."

I believe there is a mistake. Should be C.
charlie smarkheim: REAL money vs. money. note the difference.
endurance Nominal money = real money * price level

The price level affects nominal money but not real money (which is a constant).

If the price increases and you are increasing your money holding, the real money holding is constant - meaning that the quantity of real money is not affected
ColonelCFA Essentially you can think of nominal many as actual dollar amounts while real money is the purchasing power of those dollars? So an increase in price doesn't affect the amount you want to purchase (real money) but the amount of dollars (nominal money) it takes to maintain that real money or purchasing power amount.

confusing.
