Unformatted text preview: Chapter 12 Study Guide To Accompany Macroeconomics: Theory and Policy By B. Modjtahedit Prepared by T. J. McCarthy and B. Modjtahedi University of California, Davis Key Points Aggregate demand function gives the combinations price and GDP levels at which both the money and goods markets are in equilibrium. Aggregate demand function is downward sloping for three reasons. They are: The wealth effect The foreign trade effect The Interest rate effect Key Points The wealth effect : All else being the same, a reduction in the general price level increases the purchasing power of household wealth, stimulating consumption and pushing up the aggregate demand. To clear the goods market, the real GDP must increase. Similarly, for an increase in the price level.

Net exports increases pushing up the aggregate demand. To clear the goods market, the real GDP must increase. Similarly, for an increase in the price level.

This stimulates consumption and investment spending, pushing up the aggregate demand. To clear the goods market, the real GDP must increase. Similarly, for an increase in the price level.

This book will assume that the money market always clears. So if the economy is off the AD function, the goods market must be out of equilibrium. P 80 90 100 110 120 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 Y AD Excess supply of goods Y > AD Excess demand for goods Y < AD Y = Multiplier AD Key Points Shifts in the AD Function : Any change in the components of aggregate demand that is not the result of a change in P will cause a shift in the AD function. Note: Y is the amount of horizontal shift in the AD function. P 80 90 100 110 120 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 Y AD Any event that increases a component of aggregate demand (C, I, G, or X M), except a change in P. Any event that decreases a component of aggregate demand (C, I, G, or X M), except a change in P....
