Impact of a 10% Increase in Output by a Specific Quintile Group Total Output Produced Across All Income Earners (100% of all income earning households) = \$10 Trillion \$10 Trillion Total output produced by all 5 quintile groups combined (100% of income earners) Breakdown of each quintile's contribution to total output: Top Quintile Group: 60% Bottom Quintile Group: 5% TOP QUINTILE: A 10% increase in output by the Top Quintile would have the following effect on GDP \$ 6.00 Tr 60% of \$10 Trillion = \$6 Trillion \$ . 60 Tr A 10% rise in output by this one group alone would cause GDP to rise by \$600 Billion 3. Impact on GDP \$ 10.6 Tr GDP would increase to: \$10.6 Trillion 4. Percent change in GDP BOTTOM QUINTILE: A 10% in output by the Bottom Quintile would have the following effect on GDP \$500 B 5% of \$10 Tr = \$500 Billion \$50 B a 10% increase in the income of bottom quintile causes GDP to rise by only \$50B

Unformatted text preview: 3. Impact on GDP \$10.05 Tr So, total GDP rises to \$10.05 Trillion, and 4. Percent change in GDP: Ratio between a 10% rise in income for top quintile vs. a 10% rise in income for bottom quintile: 12-to-1 Top Quintile's impact on GDP: \$ 600 Billion (\$600 Billion / \$50 Billion) = 12 / 1 or 12-to-1 ratio Bottom Quintile's impact on GDP: \$ 50 Billion 1. Calculate the dollar value of top quintile's output 2. Calculate the change in the top quintile's output ↑ by 6% % Change in GDP as a result of a 10% rise in this group's output = (\$10.6 Tr - \$ 10 Tr) / \$10Tr = + 6% 1. Calculate the dollar value of the bottom quintile's output 2. Calculate the change in this group's output ↑ by 0.5% % change in GDP as a result of a 10% rise in this group's output is = (\$10.05Tr - \$10Tr) / \$10Tr = + 0.5%...
