Galen University Intermediate Macroeconomics (ECON-211) Spring 2017 In-class Practice Exercises Jan. 25, 2017 1. Suppose Belize’ s economy is represented by the following equations: Z = C + I + G C = 500 + .5Y D T = 600 I = 300 Y D = Y - T G = 2000 a) Given the above variables, calculate the equilibrium level of output. Hint : First specify (using the above numbers) the demand equation (Z) for this economy. Second, using the equilibrium condition, equate this expression with Y. Once you have done this, solve for the equilibrium level of output. Using the ZZ-Y graph (i.e., a graph that includes the ZZ line and 45-degree line with Z on the vertical axis, and Y on the horizontal axis), illustrate the equilibrium level of output for this economy. b) Now, assume that consumer confidence decreases causing a reduction in autonomous consumption (c o ) from 500 to 400. What is the new equilibrium level of output? How much does income change as a result of this event? What is the multiplier for this economy? c) Graphically illustrate the effects of this change in autonomous consumption on the

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
