1.Production Function: Y=AK α L 1- α 2.Labor Market: L s [w 1 = (W/P) 1 ; A 1 , w 2 , WAPOP, LFPR, r] & L d (W/P; A, K) 3.Goods Market (loan funds market): S[r; Y 1 , Y 2 , A 1 | fiscal policy variables] & I d (r; t, permanent change in A) 4.Money Market: M = k (r, π e )PY (lefthand side is money supply and the righthand side is money demand) It is more convenient to write money market equilibrium as M = M d (P; Y, r, π e ). In the classical model, the labor market and the production function determine equilibrium L, W/P and Y. The money market determines the equilibrium P and the loanable funds market determines equilibrium r, S and I d. Symbol Key: w = real wage rate = W/P (with the subscript 1 it represents current-period real wage rate) W = nominal wage rate P = price level L d = labor demand L s = labor supply WAPOP = working-age population LFPR =labor-force participation rate K = capital stock L = labor (employment) MPL = marginal product of labor A = measure of "technology" (total factor productivity) Y = real output = real income S = real national saving I d = desired real investment spending r = expected real rate of interest M = money supply = the Cambridge k = (desired holdings money expressed as a % on nominal income) PY = M d = the demand for money ( desired holdings of money) π e = expected inflation rate w 2 = (W/P) 2 = future period real wage rate Y 1 = current period real income (for convenience we will drop the subscript on the graph) MPK f = expected-future marginal product of capital Y 2 = future-period real income T = real (net) tax revenue C = real consumption spending G = real government spending on goods and services A 1 = real wealth (real assets)
