7.Suppose the country Condupta have an income-expenditure model of the form:C = 50 + 0.85Yd Yd = Y – T T = 400I = 150G = 300EX = 80IM = 10 + 0.05Y
a)
Compute the equilibrium values of Y, C, and IM. (3 marks)
b)
Verify your answer by showing that Y* = C* + I* + G* + (EX* - IM*), where “*”denotes equilibrium value. (1/2 mark)
c)
Compute and state the slope of the aggregate expenditure function. (1/2 mark)
d)
Compute the government spending multiplier for the economy. (1 mark)e)At equilibrium Y, is the government budget in surplus or deficit, and by how much?(1 mark)
f)
Assume that G increased by 200, compute the new equilibrium output. (1 mark)
g)
Draw a carefully labeled aggregate expenditure diagram using information found in (a)and (e) identifying the old and new equilibrium. Be sure to label thei. the axes; ii. the curves ; iii. The initial values;iv. the direction the curves shift; and v. the terminal values. (3 marks)8a.
An economy is initially at the natural level of output. There is an increase in government
spending. Use the IS-LM model to illustrate both the short-run and long-run impact of this policychange. Wwhere AB represents the short run and AC represents the long run. (3 marks)8b. Explain in words the short-run and long-run impact of the change in government spending onoutput and interest rates. (2 mark)
