  • In macroeconomics, the money supply is the quantity of money in circulation that an economy has at a time.
  • Money supply can be defined as the quantity of the currency in circulation.
    • Each country may use the definition that best makes sense to them.
  • It affects the inflation.
    • If the money supply rises, inflation rises.
    • If the money supply decreases, inflation decreases.


  • Why does inflation increase/decrease if the money supply increase/decrease?

  • Are there other definitions of the money supply besides "quantity of the money in circulation"?
