CHAPTER 9The IS-LM Model: MacroeconomicEquilibrium with Fixed Prices
QuestionsWhat is the IS curve?How do changes in interest rates affect the equilibrium level of production and income in a sticky-price model?What determines the money market equilibrium with sticky prices?What is the LM curve?
QuestionsWhat is an IS shock?What is an LM shock?What is the IS-LM equilibrium? How do different shocks affect the IS-LM equilibrium?
QuestionsWhat is the relationship between shifts in the equilibrium on the IS-LM diagram and changes in the real exchange rate?What is the relationship between shifts in the equilibrium on the IS-LM diagram and changes in the balance of trade?

Figure 9.1 - Autonomous Spending as a Function of the Real Interest Rate
The Investment-Saving(IS) CurveBecause a change in the real interest rate changes autonomous spending, it will change the equilibrium level of real GDPthe effect will be equal to the interest sensitivity of autonomous spending (Ir+ Xr) times the multiplier
The Investment-Saving(IS) CurveTo find a point on the IS curve:pick a value for the real interest rate and determine the level of autonomous spending at that interest rateuse the income-expenditure diagram to determine the equilibrium level of real GDPRepeat this procedure to find other points on the IS curve
