Aggregate Expenditure and Equilibrium Income ± Desired or planned total expenditure on goods and services means the total expenditure that households, firms, governments, and foreigners wish to make at each level of income ¾ Therefore, the AE function relates the level of desired to the level of real income ± There is a level of income ( Y* ) at which AE is equal to the actual level of output ( Y ) Æ Y= AE ¾ i.e., actual expenditure is equal to desired expenditure * the vel of income or output for the © Gustavo Indart Slide 4 ± Y is the equilibrium level of income or output for the economy
Aggregate Expenditure and Equilibrium Income (continued) ± If AE= Y , then desired spending is equal to output and the economy is in equilibrium ± If AE> Y , then there is excess desired spending in the economy and thus the level of output will tend to rise ± If AE< Y , then there is insufficient desired spending in e economy and thus the level of output will tend to the economy and thus the level of output will tend to fall © Gustavo Indart Slide 5
