Ar : * 10, AY = . , “—AP =  , A8 I 50, A—Y — —1/40 and LRRR— — H2 In addition, assume that the initial equilibrium values are: Y = 1000, M = 500, P = 1, r = 8%, the budget deficit— — 150, and the trade deficit = 200. Now, assume the following autonomous changes: AT:  50,
AN — —2, AP =  .,2 and Ar = +1%. Given this information compute the
following: A5
A. M
B AE C. The value of the multiplier D. The equilibrium change in Y, and the total equilibrium changes
in the budget deficit, the trade deficit, nominal M, real M, and the total
required open market action (indicate whether a purchase or sale and how
much). E. Graph this problem, showing both deficits, the money market,
and the YD and P schedules. Show on your graphs, using the magnitudes you have computed, the initial and final equilibrium values for Y, real M, CHI/J [i=7/ and both deficits. Make sure and show the magnitude of the shift
in each displaced schedule as well as the magnitude of the
movement along each schedule, using the numbers you have
computed. 2. Explain the reasoning behind the following behavioral
assumptions. A "XE<0

ANX E “3'3": 3. Suppose the economy is at full employment equilibrium
and the Congress and the President decide to increase government
spending on public investments by $50 billion. Assume that Greenspan
and the Federal Reserve Board institute a monetary policy which
successfully prevents any autonomous change in aggregate demand.
Given the estimated behavioral coefficients in question 1, compute the
following: A. The required A? B. The equilibrium ATD C. The equilibrium AI D. The equilibrium ANT E. The equilibrium AI) F. The equilibrium ANS
Write a paragraph explaining the social benefits and costs of this
policy, and in your answer give a couple examples of private vs
public investment. Art Benavie
