EC200-70 HW 4 PART 1 (Due back on Nov. 4) Fall 2017 1. Suppose the economy of Clintonia has the following macroeconomic relations: Consunption function: C = 2,000 + 0.75 (Y – T) Investment function: I = 12,000 – 1,500 r Govt. spending: G = 23,000; Exports: X = 4,000 Import function: M = 5,000 + 0.1 Y; Tax function: T = 5,000 + 0.20Y Money demand function: Md = 0.50 Y – 3,500 r; Money supply: Ms = 31,400 Potential output: Yp = 63,400 Equilibrium condition for real sector: Y = C + I + G +(X – M) Equilibrium condition for monetary sector: Money supply = Money demand or Ms = Md (a) The equilibrium equation for the real sector of this economy is: Y = _____________ - _________ r. (b) The equilibrium equation of the monetary sector of this economy is: Y = ____________ + _________r. (c) Given the above equilibrium equation for the real sector and the monetary sector of this economy, the equilibrium values of the following variables are: Equilibrium Value of: Y = ____________; r =_________; T = __________; C = ___________; I = ____________. Govt. Budget Deficit = _____________; and Trade Deficit = ______________. (d) Using the given Yp value, we can say that this economy has a problem of RECESSION / INFLATION: __________________ (write your answer here). (e) Suppose the government spending (G) is changed by 5,000 from 23,000 to 28,000. The new equations for equilibrium in the real sector and the monetary sector of this economy would be as follows: New equilibrium equation for the Real sector: Y = __________________ - _____________ r, and New equilibrium equation for the Monetary Sector: Y = ________________ + ______________ r. (f) Using the above new equilibrium equations, the new equilibrium values of the following variables would be as follow. New Equilibrium Value of:

Y = ____________; r =_________; T = __________; C = ___________; I = ____________. Govt. Budget Deficit = ______________; and Trade Deficit = ______________. (g) Comparing the equilibrium values of the selected variables from part (c ) and part (f), we see that: (I) Y went UP / DOWN (choose one) because ____________________________________________.

    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.
