-1/1-.5=2 -in sum, when g increases economy grows at (1/1-MPC) times the increase in G -suppose begin at AE, and P1 -now suppose price level increase to p2 -when price increases, you buy less in “real terms” so AE decreases to AE2

Unformatted text preview: -suppose price decreases to p3-when price decreases, you buy more stuff, AE increases to AE3-connect the dots on bottom graph and get AD-consider very short run all prices are sticky-suppose G increases-this increase AE to AE2-then AD increases to AD2-but in SR, prices can adjust (wages sticky)-SR equilibrium is where AD=SRAS-so in SR, prices go up a little.-but when price increases, AE decreases to AE3-in LR, wage can adjust-when G increase, AE increase, to AE2-and AD to AD2-in SR, Price increase, AE decreases to AE3-in LR, wages increase, SRAS decreases to SRAS2 then Price increases, AE decreases to AE,-in LR, Govt has no effect on real GDP-only effect is higher prices...
