Q. Evaluate Nominal wages?
Nominal wages
W = (W/P).P
The nominal wage is equal to the real wage times the price level.
Because the real wages W/P is determined in labor market and P is determined by quantity theory of money, we can also determine nominal wage in classical model: W = (W/P).P. From the labor market, Say's Law and quantity theory, now we have determined W, P, Y and L. We can also illustrate how all these four are determined concurrently:Â
