(6pts) Consider the Mundell-Fleming model. (a) Derive the value of income that simultaneously balances the goods & services and money markets. Denote this value as Y * . (b) Discuss how Y * varies with an appreciation of the US dollar. (Note: ignore the changes that are associated with the BoP.) Answer: (a) From the lecture notes, the IS curve is: r = 1 c + i i ( a + ¯ I + G- bT + x + x 1 Y f- x 2 1 e P- z + z 2 eP f )- 1- b + z 1 c + i 1 Y The LM curve is the same as in Keyesian model, note that the real money supply M = M s /P : r = 1 c 2 ( c- M s P ) + c 1 c 2 Y Solve for the equilibrium Y: 1 c + i i ( a + ¯ I + G- bT + x + x 1 Y f- x 2 1 e P- z + z 2 eP f )- 1- b + z 1 c + i 1 Y = 1 c 2 ( c- M s P )+ c 1 c 2 Y ( c 1 c 2 + 1- b + z 1 c + i 1 ) Y = 1 c + i i ( a + ¯ I + G- bT + x + x 1 Y f- x 2 1 e P- z + z 2 eP f...
