Unformatted text preview: 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 I s Stable For This Labor-Market-Clearing Economy. • I gnoring The I nterest-Rate Effect Which Williamson I ncludes, Y s = Y The Demand Structure Of A Simple Closed Economy • Looking At the Goods Market • S + T – I – G = 0 • S = -a + (1-b)·Y d – T = -170 + .4·Y d- T • C = a + b·Y d = +170 + .6·Y d • I = I – h·r = 190 – 1000·r • T = T = 300 • G = G = 300 Specifics Of Variables • S I s Saving, T I s Taxes, I I s I nvestment, G I s Government Expenditures, Y d I s Aggregate Demand, • a I s The I ntercept Term Of The Consumption Function, b I s The Marginal Propensity To Consume And Has A Value Between Zero And One (That I s, I t Has A Fractional Value). h I s A Parameter. The Favorite Value For h I s 1000 • I , G , And T Are Exogenous Variables. Favorite Values Are 190, 300, And 300 The Supply Side • Y s = Y + e·r • For Most Of Our Analysis We Will Assume That The Value Of The Parameter e Is Zero. (By Assuming That e Has A Value That Is Positive But Small, Williamson Makes His Diagrammatic Analysis Very Complicated.) • Y s = Y d = Y = Y • Our Favorite Value For Y Is 1500. The Money Market • m d = p + m d + .001·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...
