2 Deriving the Multiplier Y = C + I + G + X Definitions: C = Consumption Expenditures I = Investment Expenditures G = Government Purchases X = Net Exports

4 Marginal Propensity to Consume: - measures the change in C associated with a change in income Y. MPC = C/ Y = b 0 < MPC < 1

5 Marginal propensity to Save: Measures the change in saving associated with a change in income Y. S = Y – C = Y – a – b(Y – T) S = -a + (1 – b)Y + bT MPS = S/ Y = 1 – b 0 < MPS < 1
