ECO 106 – Fall 2009HAND-IN ASSIGNMENT II – due 11/3:1.An economy has the following aggregate consumption function: C = 10 + MPC * YD, where MPC = 0.8. Investment spending = 30. We assume for simplicity that there is no government spending, and that prices and interest rates stay constant as demand changes. Assume that YD = GDP.(i)Draw a graph for desired aggregate spending, and find equilibrium GDP in this economy. (Find the value of equilibrium GDP, and mark it in the graph.)(ii)If GDP = 150, is the economy in equilibrium or not? What is happening to inventories? Are producers happy with the situation, or what will tend to happen?(iii)If Investment spending increases from 30 to 50, what is the new equilibrium value of GDP? Show graphically and find a number for the new level of GDP. (iv)Why does GDP not increase by 20? Explain briefly.2.A closed economy has a total production of $50 mill. Consumption is $35 mill., government spending is $6 mill.

As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.
Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern
I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern
The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
