  1. What is disposable income(YD)?
    • YD = Y-T------ or------ YD = C+ S
    • Y-GDP------------------- C-Consumption
    • T-Taxes------------------ S-saving
  2. The relationship between consumption expenditure and disposable income, other things remaining the same, is the
    Consumption Function
  3. The relationship between saving and disposable income, other things remaining the same, is the
    Saving Function
  4. When consumption expenditure exceeds disposable income,
    saving is negative (dissaving)
  5. When consumption expenditure is less thandisposable income,
    There is saving
  6. The marginal propensity to consume (MPC) is the
    • fraction of a change in disposable income spent on consumption.
    • MPC = change in C / change in YD
    • *MPC is the slope of the consumption function*
  7. The marginal propensity to save (MPS) is the
    • fraction of a change in disposable income that is saved.
    • MPS = change in S / change in YD
    • *MPS is the slope of the saving function
  8. The marginal propensity to importis the
    fraction of an increase in real GDP spent on imports.
  9. Aggregate planned expenditure is
    planned consumption expenditure plus planned investment plus planned government expenditure plus planned exports minus planned imports.
  10. Induced expenditure is
    Consumption expenditure minus imports, which varies with real GDP.
  11. Autonomous expenditure is
    The sum of investment, government expenditure, and exports, which does not vary with Real GDP.
  12. Actual aggregate expenditureis always equal to
    real GDP
  13. Aggregate planned expendituremay differ from actual aggregate expenditure because firms can have
    inventories that are greater or smaller than planned.
  14. Equilibrium expenditureis the level of aggregate expenditure that occurs
    when aggregate expenditure equals real GDP.
  15. Equilibrium occurs at the point at which the aggregate expenditure curve crosses
    the 45°line
  16. The multiplier is the amount by which a change in ______________________ is magnified or multiplied to determine the change in _____________________
    • autonomous expenditure
    • equilibrium expenditure and real GDP
  17. The size of the multiplier is
    • the change in equilibrium expenditure divided by the change in autonomous expenditure.
    • Multiplier = 1/(1-slope of AE curve)
    • Multiplier = Change in Y / Change in autonomous expedniture, A
  18. The multiplier in terms of MPS and MPC is
    • multiplier = 1/(1-MPC)
    • 1-MPC = MPS
    • Multiplier =1/MPS
  19. Both imports and income taxes ____ the size of the multiplier.
  20. The aggregate expenditure curve is the relationship between
    aggregate planned expenditure and real GDP
  21. The aggregate demand curveis the relationship between
    The quanitity of real GDP and the price level
  22. In the long run the multipier is equal to
