Y=E=C+I+G C=100+(2/3) (1100200)=700 G=200 I=300 Y=E=700+200+300=1,200 Inventory decreased by 100 and Production needs to increase b. What is equilibrium Y? Y=E (Y) Y=100+ (2/3)(Y200)+300+200 Y=100+(2/3)Y 133 1/3+ 500 (1/3Y)= 466 2/3 Y=1,400 c. What are equilibrium levels of consumption, private saving, public saving, and national saving, based on equilibrium level of output you just found? Consumption= C=100+(2/3)(1400200)=900 Private Savings=Sp=YCT Sp=1400900200=300 Public Savings=Sg=TG Sg=200200=0 National Savings=Sp+Sg NS=300 d. Compared to (b), what is the new equilibrium income when investment is reduced by 50? What is the Keynesian multiplier for investment spending? Y=E=C+I+G Y=100+(2/3)(Y200)+250+200 Y=100+(2/3Y)133 1/3 +450 (1/3Y)=416 2/3 Y=1,250, lowered by 150 Keynesian multiplier= 1/(1b)=1/1MPC=1/1(2/3) 3 e. Compared to the answer found in (b), what is the new equilibrium income if taxes are e....
