Week 5 EC301 2 011 Problem 5-1 (a-e) Suppose that the equation for autonomous planned spending, A p , is A p = 6,200 – 200r and the value of the multiplier, k, 2.5. (a) Derive the equation for the IS curve, Y=kA p . Graph the IS curve for interest rates between 0 and 8, with intervals of one-half of a percentage point. Given A p = 6200- 200r and k=2.5, The IS curve is given by, Y=kA p = 15500 – 500r.

Use this equation to explain the level of income at which there is a zero lower bound on the federal funds rate, the interest rate that the Fed controls.
