Herzog (GU) Aggregate Expenditures February 25, 2014 40 / 43 Endogenous Taxes and Imports Aggregate Expenditures The slope of the aggregate expenditure is now (MPC − MPC × t1 − v ). Suppose there is $1,000 increase in income, the tax rate is t1 = 0.2, the marginal propensity to import is v = 0.1, and the MPC = 0.8. Under the simple model a $1,000 increase in income would have resulted in an additional $800 in consumption. Now the household must first pay taxes of 20%. This leaves them with $800. Of the $800 they will consume 80% or $640, but of the $640, some of this is imports. According the marginal propensity to import the household purchased 0.1 ∗ 1000 of foreign goods. The net effect on consumption is only $540. Ryan W.

Herzog (GU) Aggregate Expenditures February 25, 2014 42 / 43 Endogenous Taxes and Imports Introduction The next step is to see how this change will affect equilibrium income. Recall Y = PAE . Substituting for PAE: Y = [C − (MPC )t0 + I + G + X − u ] + (MPC − MPC × t1 − v )Y Solving for Y: Y − (MPC − MPC × t1 − v )Y = [C − (MPC )T + I + G + NX ] or Y (1 − MPC + MPC × t1 + v ) = [C − (MPC )T + I + G + NX ] Dividing both sides by (1 − MPC + MPC × t1 + v ): Y= 1 [C − (MPC )T + I + G + NX ] (17) 1 − MPC + MPC × t1 + v Ryan W.
