CORRECT ANSWERS ARE DIRECTLY BELOW THE WORDS CORRECT ANSWER. FOR FILL-IN-THE-BLANK questions: If your answer is in decimal form, round to 2 decimal places. For example, if your answer is .412, enter it into the fill-in-the-blank as .41, or if your answer is 1.415, enter it into the fill-in-the-blank as 1.42. If there are no decimals in your answer, you will simply enter the number; so if your answer is 2, enter 2 with no decimals. Do not enter any extra spaces, do not enter commas or $ or % symbols. Question 1 3 / 3 pts Suppose the consumption function is: C = a1 Yd + a2 WRE/S + a3CC Where all the a’s (the sensitivity parameters) are greater than zero. Initial conditions: Let a1 = 0.65, a2 = 0.04, a3 = 0.5, WRE/S = 18,000: CC = 70 Solve for C in terms of Yd. Select the correct equation. C = 765 + .60 Yd None of these are correct Correct! C = 755 + .65 Yd C = 685 + .64 Yd C = 70 + .65 Yd Question 2 3 / 3 pts Use the equation you found in #1 and let Yd = 2000. C is equal to: Correct! 2,055 Correct Answers 2,055 (with margin: 0)

Question 3 3 / 3 pts Suppose that the stock market rallies so that WRE/S increases to 22,000. Additionally, consumer confidence (CC) rises to 120. Re-solve for C in terms of Yd. Select the correct equation. C = 930 + .60 Yd None of these are correct C = 830 + .65 Yd C = 980 + .64 Yd Correct! C = 940 + .65 Yd Question 4 3 / 3 pts Now suppose disposable income (Yd) falls due to a tax increase (Uncle Sam is trying to balance the budget) to 1800. Solve for the level of consumption using the equation you found in question #3. Consumption (C) is equal to: Correct! 2,110 Correct Answers 2,110 (with margin: 0) Question 5 3 / 3 pts Now we will calculate the level of consumption that would have occurred if Uncle Sam did not raise taxes. In other words, use the equation you found in question 3, but keep Yd at its original value of 2000. Consumption (C) is equal to: Correct! 2,240 Correct Answers

2,240 (with margin: 0) Question 6 3 / 3 pts Look at the consumption values you calculated in #2 and #4. The percent change in consumption between those values is: _________% NOTE: There is no graphing component to be collected for this homework. However, you should be comfortable graphing the equations you found in #1 and #3. You should also be able to plot the points you found in #2, #4 and #5. Correct! 2.68 Correct Answers 2.68 (with margin: 0) NOTE: There is no graphing component to be collected for this homework. However, you should be comfortable graphing the equations you found in #1 and #3. You should also be able to plot the points you found in #2, #4 and #5. Question 7 3 / 3 pts Use the table below for questions 7 & 8. Let’s consider some data on consumption and disposable income from the Federal Reserve Database (measured in billions of dollars) Real Personal Consumption Expenditures Real Disposable Personal Income January 1, 1995 6442.9 7190.9

January 1, 2018 12061.0 12940.5 The percent change in consumption between 1/1/95 and 1/1/18 is: _______%.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
