Question 2 1 out of 1 points The aggregate supply curve of classical economists Correct Answer: is vertical Feedback: Correct. The AS curve is vertical at the full employme nt level in the classical view. See p. 321, especially Figure 17.1. Question 3 0 out of 1 points Classical theory concludes that the production behavior of firms will not change when the price level decreases because input costs would Correct Answer: fall along with product prices to leave real profits and output unchanged Feedback: This is how the economy stays at the full employme nt level, because of flexible wages and prices. See p. 321, including Figure 17.1. Question 4 0 out of 1 points In classical economics, a decrease in aggregate demand results in Correct Answer: a decrease in the price level and no change in domestic output Feedback: A decrease in aggregate demand would cause a drop in output if wages and prices didn't adjust to the change in spending.
