Question 32A increase in tao, the effective tax rate on capital will result in the investment demand function shifting to the right.
Question 33The slope of the investment demand function indicates how sensitive investment is to changes in real interest rates. The 'steeper' the investment demand function, the less sensitive investment is to changes in the real rate of interest, all else constant
Question 34A rise in exports, all else constant, will increase net exports.
Question 35
If the US is growing faster than the rest of the world, then all else constant, the trade deficit will widen (get more negative assuming we were running a trade deficit to begin with).
Question 36If the inflation rate rises in China so that it exceeds that of the US, then net exports for the US should increase, all else constant.
Question 37If the exchange rate between the US dollar and Japanese yen changes from $1 = 100 yen to $1 = 120 yen, then US exports to Japan will become more expensive to Japanese importers.
Question 38We argued that cash flow (CF) increased during the Great Recession and thus, had a positive effect on investment.
Question 39In a consumption function with income (Y) on the horizontal axis and consumption (C) on the vertical axis, a rise in stock market wealth, all else constant, will result in a movement along the consumption function.
Question 40The weaker the US dollar is relative to the rest of the world, all else constant, the larger the net exports in the US.
Question 41A fall in the tax rate on capital will cause the aggregate expenditure curve to shift up and the aggregate demand curve to shift to the left, all else constant.
Question 42
One reason that the aggregate demand curve slopes downward is that when prices rise, say in the US, the relative price of imports fall and thus, US citizens substitute away from domestically produced goods toward imported goods and thus, GDP in the US will fall (all else constant).
Question 43Suppose the value of the US dollar changes from $1 = 1.2 euros to $1 = 1.30 euros. This being the case, imports from the US to Europe, have become less expensive to European citizens, all else constant.
Question 44One reason the aggregate demand curve slopes downward is due to the fact that if the price level falls, real money balances rise, all else constant, interest rates will fall causing an increase in consumption and investment.
Question 45Assuming that natural gas for firm X is an important input to the production process, an increase in the availability of natural gas that lowers the price of natural gas, will result in a leftward shift of firm X's supply curve.
