ECMA06 Tutorial #3 Answer Key Question 1 Part (a) The AE function: AE = C + I AE = [60 + 0.75Y] + [100 – 10(r – 0.05)] = [60 + 0.75Y] + [100 – 10(0.05 – 0.05)] AE = 160 + 0.75Y Equilibrium output/income: In equilibrium, Y = AE: Y = 160 + 0.75Y 0.25Y = 160 Y* = 640 Part (b) Suppose that output is set accidentally at 600 (i.e., Y = 600): The level of AE when Y = 600: AE = 160 + 0.75(600) = 610 Mechanism that brings output back to equilibrium: Since Y = 600 & AE = 610, the economy is trying to purchase more output than is being produce; i.e., we have excess demand. Prices are fixed (by assumption) at their current level, firms try to satisfy the excess demand by depleting their inventories that leaves inventories below their desired levels. To replenish inventories to their desired levels, firms would increase their current level of output. This pressure will continue until output increases to its equilibrium level of 640. If Y = 600, how will GDP be measured using the final products approach? If Y = 600, C = 160 + 0.75(600) = 510 & I = 100 In terms of GDP accounting, C = 510 & investment = 600 – 510 = 90.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
