We will also explain how new equilibriums are reached. IS-LM Model This is the backbone of short-term microeconomics. We put our IS and LM curve together to form the IS-LM Model. We are in general equilibrium in this model. General Equilibrium Requires: 1) Equilibrium in the goods market 2) Equilibrium in the money market. This does not imply long-term equilibrium. This would only represent long- term equilibrium if output were the same as potential output. Our intersection represents our short- term equilibrium. Notice how this is not necessarily long-term equilibrium because we are not necessarily at potential GDP. We know by using government policy we can influence these curves to bring us to equilibrium. We will discuss this later. Endogenous Variables of IS-LM These are values that will be determined inside our IS-LM model. 1) Income – Y = C + I + G + (X – M) 2) Interest rates – R 3) Consumer spending – C = Co + mpc(1 – t)Y – α R. 4) Investment – I = Io – δ R 5) Exports – X = Xo + xYf – θ R 6) Imports – M = Mo + mY + ψ R 7) Taxes – tY 8) Money demand – L = Lo + hY – kR Notice that each one of these variables is dependent on interest rates, income, or both. Exogenous Variables of IS-LM These are values that will be determined outside our IS-LM model. 1) Autonomous Consumption Activity – Co Æ Wealth and consumer confidence.

We assume a short- enough period of time where inflation is 0. Notice that G, t, and Ms are government determined. This means that the government can exercise some influence over the position of our curves and thus our equilibrium income. Disequilibria Dynamics
