ANSWERS PRACTICE QS CH 9 FALL 2007 1. Y = 150 + .75 (Y-200) + 100 + 150 Y = 150 + .75Y – 150 + 100 + 150 Y - .75Y = 250 .25Y = 250 Y = 250/.25 = 1000 C = 150 + .75(1000-200) C = 150 +600 = 750 Yd = Y-T = 1000-200 = 800 S = Yd – C = 800 – 750 =50 Tax multiplier = -MPC/1-MPC = -.75/.25 = -3 Therefore change in Y = -20 x –3 = 60 New Y = 1000 + 60 = 1060 C = 150 + .75(1060-180) C = 150 + 660 = 810 S = Yd-C = 880 – 810 = 70 You would argue for this if the economy needed to be stimulated because Eq Y < FE Y. You would argue against this if the economy did not need to be stimulated. If the economy was already at FE, this stimulation would lead to inflation. 2.
