Problem B

Compare a $30,000 income in 1975 to that in 2015, and analyze the following questions:

  1. How is the availability of products expected to change over the years?
  2. How is the quality of products likely to change over the years?
  3. How would your standard of living change over the years?
  4. Given a choice, would you choose to live in 1975? Why or Why not?
Problem C
  • In the aggregate demand model in equilibrium, GDP (Y) = C + I + X (open economy).
  • Where C = consumption schedule = 100 + .75Y (consumption is a function of income).
  • Where I = planned investment = 20 and X = net exports = 40. Both are independent of GDP (Y).

Use the information provided above to complete the following:

  1. Calculate the equilibrium level of income or real GDP for this economy.
  2. What happens to equilibrium Y if Ig changes to 15?
  3. What does this outcome reveal about the size of the multiplier?
  4. Can there be equilibrium level of output at below full employment?
