Unformatted text preview: ?. Economic fluclnafions II I} The following graph shows the short—run aggregate supply curve (AS), the aggregate demand curve (AD), and the long—run aggregate supply curve (LRAS) for a hypothetical economy. Initially, the expected price level is equal to the actual price level, and the economy is in long—run equilibrium at its natural level ofoutput, $110 billion. Suppose a bout of severe weather drives up agricultural costs, increases the costs of transporting goods and services, and increases the costs of producing goods and services in this economy. Use the graph to heip you answer the questions about the short—run and long—run eflfiects of the increase in production costs that foiiow. (Note: You wiii not be graded on any adjustments made to the graph.) Hint: For simplicity, ignore any possible impact ofthe severe weather on the natural level ofoutput. ® 13D L + 125 AS AD 12D —i:i— J 115 as LIJ E E II HID D 95 9D 9D 95 1DD 1D5 11D 115 12D 125 13D OUTPUT {Billie ns of dollars} The shortsrun economic outcome resulting from the increase in production costs is known as slagflalion if . fiPoints:_1,e'1 90 95 100 105 111'} 115 120 125 OUTPUT{BiIIiuns of dollars) Now suppose that the government decide; not to lake any aclinn in response to the short—run economic impact of the severe weather.

    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.
