Equilibrium in the Goods Market Let’s first summarize what we learned in the goods market: I The demand for goods (Z) is given by Z = C + I + G I Assumptions: I Consumption was a function of disposable income ( Y D ) C = C ( Y D ) C = C ( Y - T ) I Exports, imports, and net exports were zero I T , I , and G are given I The interest rate did not affect the demand for goods I The goods market equilibrium condition: Y = Z ⇐⇒ I = S + ( T - G ) Y = Z = Y = C ( Y - ¯ T ) + ¯ I + ¯ G I Changes in C , I and G cause changes in equilibrium Y.

Equilibrium in the Goods Market I Investment ( I ) depends on two factors: I The level of sales ( Y ) I We assume that sales and production are equal and inventory investment equals zero I The interest rate ( i ) I The investment relation can be written as follows I = I ( Y , i ) (+ , - ) I More sales encourage investment, Y → ↑ I I A higher interest rate, discourages investment, i → ↓ I Esheba (U of C) The IS-LM Model September 26, 2019 4 / 26
Equilibrium in the Goods Market I The equilibrium condition in the goods market becomes: Y = C ( Y - T ) + I ( Y , i ) + G The supply of goods
