Macroeconomics - Analysing the velocity of money. Help!!!
I dont know whether this is a right topic for statistics but pls if anyone of you know how to do this, please help me! I will be so thankful

The table below presents the calculation of money velocity "V" for three countries: Poland in 2006, US in 2009 and Colombia in 2010. The Gross Domestic Product of each country is provided an then the value of monetary aggregates at the end of the corresponding year (note: each country displays a slightly different method of communicating monetary aggregates, so only M1 is uniformly available in all the three cases). Explain the relationshio between GDP and the supply of money. why is the supply of money systematically lower than GDP? Why is the velocity of money different across countries?
 Poland,2006,millions of polish zlotys US,2009,billions of US\$ Colombia,2010,millions of US\$ GDP 1 060 031,0 14 119,0 283 109,0 M0[end of the year] 86 825,7 n.a. 29 769,5 M1[end of the year] 275 830,9 1 693,6 62 090,6 M2[end of the year] 481 210,5 8 530,9 n.a.

Hey Magie305.

Hint: What is the definition of velocity (in terms of GDP and money supply)?

Note that while you certainly have to do math operations to get the answer, this problem, and specifically the phrase "velocity of money", is economics, not mathematics. For anyone to help you with this you will have to state the specific definition of "velocity of money".
