The Keynesian Cross Planned Expenditures in the economy: E = C(Y-T*) + I* + G* T* (tax), I* (investment), G* (Gov. Expenditures) are fxed (preselected) C(Y-T*) - Consumption as a Function oF net income (aFter tax) - Assume linear: C = C 0 + a(Y-T*) a - the slope oF the expenditure line = Marginal Propensity to Consume (MPC - the Fraction oF ea. additional $ oF income spent on consumption (as opposed to saving) 2 Tuesday, March 9, 2010

Fiscal Stimulus Potential output of the economy Y 0 Due to recession output falls to Y 1 The output gap = Y 0 - Y 1 = unutilized capacity of the economy Gov. increases its purchases by : Δ G > 0 E for every level of income The equilibrium output rises to Y 0 = Y 1 + Δ Y where: Δ Y = Δ G/(1-MPC) 4 Tuesday, March 9, 2010

The Government Multiplier = Δ Y/ Δ G = 1/(1-MPC) - The increase in income in response to $1 increase in government purchases Example: Δ G = $100, MPC = 0.9 Gov. spends $100 on hiring a teacher Δ Y=$100 Teacher spends extra $90 on meal at restaurant Δ Y=$100+$90 restaurant spends $81 on extra chef. . 6
