1_ Which of the following best describes the relationship between aggregate expenditure and real GDP?
[:JA. If aggregate expenditure falls short of real GDP, inventories will decrease and real GDP and
aggregate income will increase in future
[:1 B. If aggregate expenditure falls short of real GDP, inventories will decrease and real GDP and
aggregate income will fall in future
[:1 C. If aggregate expenditure falls short of real GDP, inventories will accumulate and real GDP and
aggregate income will fall in future
[:1 D. If aggregate expenditure falls short of real GDP, inventories will accumulate and real GDP and
aggregate income will increase in ﬁJture
Answer: C
2_ When interest rate increases:
[:JA. only the dollar amount ofcredit card purchases increases
[:1 B. the consumption function shifts down since individuals face larger debt
[:1 C. cost of borrowing increases and the consumption ﬁJnction shifts up
[:1 D. cost of borrowing increases and the consumption function shifts down
Answer: D
3. Assume there are no taxes. The equation for the consumption function is given to be:
C = 100 + ORGY,
where Y represents aggregate income.
Determine the equation for the saving function:

1990's many were concemed with very large increases in stock values (a form of wealth) and its
possible effect on saving and investment. The following Consumption Function incorporates wealth
(W) as a determinant ofconsumption. We have the following information on Consumption (C) and
