As seen in the diagram below as AE increases to AE 1 the point of equilibrium shifts leftward on the 45 degree line. This shift results in leftward shift along the aggregate demand curve as seen on the diagram as E moves to E . **** The diagram is on page 551 of the text.its both graphs one under the other....
