ECON 2000 D & F: Applied Macroeconomics Assignment #1 1. Assume that there are two factors of production, K and L and that they are both fully employed at K = ´ K and L = ´ L . Assume the economy is described by the following set of equations. Y = ´ Y = F ( ´ L, ´ K ) = 1200 Y = C + I + G C = 125 + 0.75(Y-T) I = I(r) = 200 – 20r G = ´ G = 150 T = ´ T = 100 a) Calculate consumption, the interest rate, national savings, and investment. C = 125 + 0.75 ( Y T ) ¿ 125 + 0.75 ( 1200 100 ) ¿ 125 + 0.75 ( 1100 ) C = 950 Y = C + I + G 1200 = 950 + I + 150 I = 100 b) Suppose the government raises taxes from 100 to 150. Calculate consumption, the interest rate, national savings and investment. C = 125 + 0.75 ( Y T ) ¿ 125 + 0.75 ( 1200 150 ) ¿ 125 + 0.75 ( 1050 ) C = 912.5 Y = C + I + G 1200 = 912.5 + I + 150 I = 137.5 I = 200 20 r 100 = 200 20 r 100 =− 20 r r = 5 ´ S = I ( r ) I ( r ) = 100 ´ S = 100 I = 200 20 r 137.5 = 200 20 r 62.5 =− 20 r r = 3.125 ´ S = I ( r ) I ( r ) = 137.5 ´ S = 137.5
c) Draw a graph of savings, investment and interest rate showing the results of (a) and (b). 2. Perry’s Bakery needs to decide how many workers to hire. Consider the following data in the table below where output is measured in loaves of bread per hour.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• 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.
