Question 2: Suppose: C = c 0 + c 1 (Y-T) I = b 0 – b 1 i (M/P) d = m 1 Y – m 2 i G and T are constant a) How should the parameters b 1 , m 1 , and m 2 be interpreted? b) Use the IS-LM model to graphically determine the effectiveness of fiscal versus monetary policy when investment is very sensitive to changes in i, and money demand is very insensitive to changes in i. c) Now suppose that the government imposes a tax, t 1 , on income, so that the following is true: T = t 0 +t 1 Y, 0<t 1 <1 If money demand is very insensitive to changes in the interest rate, is a decrease in the
