1. [ Mankiw p. 147] Consider a small country economy described by the following equations.
(1)
Y = 5,000
(2) Y = C + I + G + NX
(3)
C = a + b(YT)
.
(4)
I = c – dr.
(5)
G = 1000.
(6)
T = 1000
(7)
r = r* = 5 .
(8)
NX = 500  500
ε
where a = 250, b = 0.75, c = 1,000, d = 50.
Equilibrium Analysis:
(a)
Derive SI from (1) – (7) and use S – I = NX, i.e., net capital flow always equals the trade balance, to
find the equilibrium
ε
and NX.
Also show your answer
graphically
in the (
ε
, NX) space. [5]
Comparative static:
(b) Suppose G = 1,000 rises to G’ = 1,250.
Find the new equilibrium
ε
and NX. Also show your answer
graphically
in the (
ε
, NX) space. [5]
(c)
Suppose r* = 5 rises to r*’ = 10.
Find the new equilibrium
