Suppose that the stock market rallies so that WRE/S increases to 22,000. Additionally, consumer confidence (CC) rises to 120. Re-solve for C in terms of Y d . Select the correct equation. C = 930 + .60 Y d Correct! C = 940 + .65 Y d None of these are correct C = 830 + .65 Y d C = 980 + .64 Y d Question 4 3 / 3 pts Now suppose disposable income (Y d ) falls due to a tax increase (Uncle Sam is trying to balance the budget) to 1800. Solve for the level of consumption using the equation you found in question #3. Consumption (C) is equal to: Correct! Correct Answers 2110 Question 5 3 / 3 pts Now we will calculate the level of consumption that would have occurred if Uncle Sam did not raise taxes. In other words, use the equation you found in question 3, but keep Y d at its original value of 2000. Consumption (C) is equal to: Correct! Correct Answers 2240 Question 6 3 / 3 pts
Look at the consumption values you calculated in #2 and #4. The percent change in consumption between those values is: _________% NOTE: There is no graphing component to be collected for this homework. However, you should be comfortable graphing the equations you found in #1 and #3. You should also be able to plot the points you found in #2, #4 and #5. Correct!

### What students are saying

• 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.

• 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.
