1 C h a p t e r 2 1 1. Figure 4.1 above shows the flows of expenditure and income in the United States. During the second quarter of 2007, B was $9,658 billion, C was $2,147 billion, D was $2,656 billion, and E was $723 billion. Name the flows and the calculate Flow A is aggregate income; Flow B is consumption expenditure; Flow C is government expenditure; Flow D is investment; Flow E is net exports. a. Aggregate expenditure. Aggregate expenditure is $13,738 billion. Aggregate expenditure is the sum of consumption expenditure (Flow B ), investment (Flow D ), government expenditure (Flow C ), and net exports (Flow E ). Therefore aggregate expenditure equals $9,658 billion plus $2,656 billion plus $2,147 billion plus $723 billion, which is $13,738 billion. b. Aggregate income. Aggregate income is $13,738 billion. Aggregate income equals aggregate expenditure, which from part a is $13,738 billion. c. GDP. GDP is $13,738 billion. GDP equals aggregate expenditure, which from part a is $13,738 billion.

2 2. In Figure 4.1, during the second quarter of 2008, B was $10,144 billion, C was $1,980 billion, D was $2,869 billion, and E was $737 billion. Calculate the quantities in problem 1 during the second quarter of 2008. Aggregate expenditure is $14,256 billion. Aggregate expenditure is the sum of consumption expenditure (Flow B ), investment (Flow D ), government expenditure (Flow C ), and net exports (Flow E ). Therefore aggregate expenditure equals $10,144 billion plus $2,869 billion plus $1,980 billion plus $737 billion, which is $14,256 billion. Aggregate income is $14,256 billion. Aggregate income equals aggregate expenditure, which is $14,256 billion. GDP is $14,256 billion. GDP equals aggregate expenditure, which is $14,256 billion. 3. In Figure 4.1, during the second quarter of 2006, A was $13,134 billion, B was $9,162 billion, D was $3,340 billion, and E was $777 billion. Calculate a. Aggregate expenditure. Aggregate expenditure is $13,134 billion. Flow A is aggregate income and aggregate income equals aggregate expenditure. b. Aggregate income. Aggregate income is $13,134 billion. c. GDP. GDP is $13,134 billion. GDP equals aggregate expenditure, which from part a is $13,134 billion. d. Government expenditure. Government expenditure is $1,409 billion. Aggregate expenditure is the sum of consumption expenditure (Flow B ), investment (Flow D ), government expenditure (Flow C ), and net exports (Flow E ). Therefore government expenditure equals aggregate expenditure minus consumption expenditure minus investment minus net exports, Government expenditure equals $13,134 billion minus $9,162 billion minus $3,340 billion minus $777 billion, which is $1,409 billion.
