4. (Exhibit: Shift in Aggregate Demand) In this graph, initially the economy is at point E, with price P 0 and output Y . Aggregate demand is given by curve AD 0 , and SRAS and LRAS represent, respectively, short-run and long-run aggregate supply. Now assume that the aggregate demand curve shifts so that it is represented by AD 1 . The economy moves first to point ______ and then, in the long run, to point ______. A) A; D B) D; A C) C; B D) B; C 5. (Exhibit: Shift in Aggregate Demand) Assume that the economy is initially at point A with aggregate demand given by AD 2 . A shift in the aggregate demand curve to AD 0 could be the result of either a(n) ______ in the money supply or a(n) ______ in velocity. A) increase; increase B) increase; decrease C) decrease; increase D) decrease; decrease Use the following to answer questions 6-7: Exhibit: Supply Shock 6. (Exhibit: Supply Shock) In this graph, assume that the economy starts at point A and there is a favorable supply shock that does not last forever.
