Clearing Of The Labor Market Assuming That Wages Are Flexible, Then  Everyone Who Wants A Job At The  Prevailing Wage Can Obtain One. With Stable Loci For Demand And Supply  Of Labor, Output Is Stable For This Labor- Market-Clearing Economy. Ignoring The Interest-Rate Effect Which  Williamson Includes, Y s  = z∙Y 0

Specifics Of Variables S Is Saving, T Is Taxes, I Is Investment, G Is  Government Expenditures, Y d  Is Aggregate  Demand,  a Is The Intercept Term Of The Consumption  Function, b Is The Marginal Propensity To  Consume And Has A Value Between Zero And  One (That Is, It Has A Fractional Value).  h Is A  Parameter.  The Favorite Values For These  Parameters Are:  a = 70; b = .67; h = 1000. I 0 , G 0 , And T 0  Are Exogenous Variables.   Favorite Values Are 190, 300, And 300

The Supply Side Y s = z·Y 0 (By Assuming That r Has A Positive But Small Influence On Labor Supply, Williamson Makes His Diagrammatic Analysis Very Complicated.) Y s = Y d = Y = z·Y 0 Our Favorite Value For Y 0 Is 1500, And For z Is 1.

The Money Market m d = p + m d 0 + .00067·Y – l ·r m s = m s T m s = m d More generally: m s = m s T + (d/(1-d))·(r – r T ) We will typically deal with the polar cases: Either d = 0, which represents the case where the Bank of Canada keeps the money supply at its target level, (This Is The Formulation of Chapter 10 of Williamson); Or d = 1, which represents the case where the Bank of Canada keeps the interest rate at its target level (Which Is What Williamson Assumes In Chapter 12) We Start With The Case d = 0. Our Favorite Value For m d 0 Is 5.12. Our Favorite Value For m s T Is 7.

Specifics of Money Demand  And Supply We Will Focus On Three Cases: d = 0; d = .5; And d = 1 In Order To Keep The Algebra Manageable, We  Will Assume That  l  = 0 Whenever d ≠ 0. When d = 0, Our Favorite Value For
