Hi Lizaronoh,

Question 1 (2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 10 marks)
Exhibit A Exhibit B C=100+c Y â‘D I =Â´I âˆ’b i Exhibit C M /P=800 Â´
Yâ‘
D =Y âˆ’tY + TR Â´I =300 L=620+ k Y âˆ’h i c=0.8 b=20 k =0.2 h=20 t=0.2 5 Â´I =200

(a) For the economy shown in Exhibit A calculate the expenditure multiplier and equilibrium
income. (b) For the economy shown in Exhibit A calculate the budget surplus (BS). Identify the structural
Â¿ and cyclical components of the BS with regard to the potential output level ( Y â‘=2000 ). (c) By how much would the government have to change spending (G) to shift output to potential
Â¿ output ( Y â‘=2000 ). (d) An alternative to changing government spending to reach equilibrium is to change taxes ( t ). Calculate the tax rate ( t ) which will shift output to potential output ( Y Â¿â‘=2000 ). (e) Consider the impact on the budget surplus (BS) of the changes suggested in (c) and (d). If the
government wished to implement the policy change which led to the smallest possible
structural budget surplus/deficit which policy would you advocate; changing taxes or
government spending? Question 2 (2 + 2 + 2 = 6 marks)
Let us now suppose we have an economy characterized as in Exhibit A. However, we make two
changes. First, suppose that investment expenditure is now described by the equations in Exhibit B.
Second, let us introduce a money market which is described by the equations in Exhibit C.
(a) Derive the equation for the IS curve and the equation for the LM curve. (b) Using the IS and LM curves from the previous question derive the equilibrium interest rate
and income. (c) In Exhibit A consumption spending is not driven by the interest rate. Suppose now that
consumption is determined by the following equation: Â´ c Y â‘Dâˆ’ai
C=C+
with a&gt;0 . Derive an algebraic expression for the IS curve given this and comment on the slope of this
curve compared with the case where Question 3 (2 + 2 = 4 marks) a=0 . The data in the table below illustrates some key economic indicators for the United States economy
during the period of the global financial crisis (GFC).
