Unformatted text preview: Question 8 [5 points] Your solution to the question was : For all the questions below select the appropriate answer: :1 Suppose Ihe MPG and the slope of the AE function are 0.8. giving a mulliplier of5_D_ Then a newly formed govemrnent i1troduces a net is: on national income. NT = 021'. As a result the slope ofthe AE function increases to 1.0. Ihe rnultiplier and equilibrium national income both increase. 0' the slope oflhe AE function deuease to 0.641 Ihe muliplerdea'eaees to 2.78 and equllbrim nalional income decreases. the slope ofthe AE function is unchanged, the multiplier remains 5.0 and equilbnum national income is not attached. the slope ofthe AE function demases to I164, the mult'plier demases to 1.56 and equiibnum national rooms decreases. b) In an open economy with imporls described by the import function: llu'l = 0.25Y and exports equal to X = 25!): exports would be greaterthan imports at all levels of GDP. it real GDP were 1600 net exports would be zero. the net exportfunction would be H): = 250 + 0251’. 0' in a daglarn the not export liJnclion would have a vertical htercepl d250 and a slope EMMA?) of- 0.25. :1 The government's actual budget surplus ordefitit is determined by: the net is: rate set by the gouemrnent 0' the net lax late. the level cfgmremment expendbne and the egullnrlum level of nallonal income. the level oigmemmenl spending set by me government. the equilibrium level of national income determined by autonomous expenditures and Ihe multiplier. d) An economy with household. business, govemment and inlemalionel trade sectors is descriJed by the follow'mg equalions: Consumption: G = 1'5 1- 0.850! - T} lnvesbnent: l = 125 Government expenditure: G = 1'5 l-lettames: NT = I12Y Exports: X = 25 Imports: IM = [HEY The multiplier. the equilibrium level of real GDP and the governments budget balance in this economywould be: 6.6T. 200D and a surplus of 325 [BB = 325}. 0' 2.0. 600 and a strplus ot-lfi [BB - 45]. 3.03.

    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.
