Saving and Investment: How it affects the Aggregate Demand Schedule Dynamic Aggregate demand schedule: Shifts when there is a change in gr rate of M or gr rate of V. Factors that affect Saving : Real Rate of interest, age demographics, temporary changes in GDP, changes in expected income, taxes Factors that affect Investment: Real rate of interest, Expected changes in Marginal Product of capital ( MP k ), permanent changes in MP k Shifts in Saving/ Investment schedule Changes in real rate of interest ( r ) Changes in velocity Dynamic Aggregate Demand Curve shifts Other factors: 1. Increase (Decrease) in consumer optimism Increase : People are optimistic about their future (in terms of output, work and income) This implies people will want to save less– presumably because people their income will rise. The decrease in saving due to the increase in consumer optimism implies the saving schedule shifts back. This results in higher interest rates and a lower level of investment and saving Since the interest rate rises, the opportunity cost of holding money increased, and people want to hold less money. This implies velocity increases and the dynamic aggregate demand curve shifts out (up).

    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.
