That price-point problem is stated in the beginning – a mold price for a projected toy can't be made for a budgeted price, thereby resulting in the need for a higher price. This was a strong point of departure for the Fisher-Price company, since few of its items had sold for more than $5. Hence Fisher-Price must decide

    The Fisher Effect and the Quantity Theory of Money Eric Mahaney 4/7/13 EC-301-1 The Fisher effect and the Fisher equation were made famous by economist Irving Fisher.
