Macroeconomics 2 Professor Brindusa Anghel Exercises 5 Solution. 1.Although our development of the Keynesian cross in this chapter assumes that taxes are a fixed amount, in many countries (including the United States) taxes depend on income. Let’s represent the tax system by writing tax revenue as where and t are parameters of the tax code.The parameter t is the marginal tax rate: if income rises by $1, taxes rise by t $1. a. How does this tax system change the way consumption responds to changes in GDP? b. In the Keynesian cross, how does this tax system alter the government-purchases multiplier? c. In the IS LM model, how does this tax system alter the slope of the IS curve?

2. Consider the economy of Hicksonia. a. The consumption function is given by C = 200 + 0.75( Y - T ). The investment function is I = 200 - 25 r . Government purchases and taxes are both 100. For this economy, graph the IS curve for r ranging from 0 to 8. b. The money demand function in Hicksonia is

Unformatted text preview: The money supply M is 1,000 and the price level P is 2. For this economy, graph the LM curve for r ranging from 0 to 8. c. Find the equilibrium interest rate r and the equilibrium level of income Y . d. Suppose that government purchases are raised from 100 to 150.How much does the IS curve shift? What are the new equilibrium interest rate and level of income? e. Suppose instead that the money supply is raised from 1,000 to 1,200. How much does the LM curve shift? What are the new equilibrium interest rate and level of income? f. With the initial values for monetary and fiscal policy, suppose that the price level rises from 2to 4.What happens? What are the new equilibrium interest rate and level of income? g. Derive and graph an equation for the aggregate demand curve. What happens to this aggregate demand curve if fiscal or monetary policy changes, as in parts (d) and (e)?...

    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.
