    I know that there's a shift in money supply in the Keynesian curve to the right, and this reduces interest because interest is the price of money. Yet how do I explain WHY it shifts. I mean i can't just say higher money supply shift from S1 to S2 lowers interets rates from I1 to I2. Okay, why?

    It is simple supply and demand. An increase in the supply of anything leads to a lower price. In this case, an increase in the supply of money leads to a fall in the price of money (The interest rate)
