---

**4) In a closed economy government spending was $30
billion, consumption was $70 billion,**

**taxes were $20 billion, and GDP was $110 billion this
year. There were no transfers.**

**Investment spending was $10 billion. As a
result:**

a) private savings were equal to $20 billion

b) private savings were equal to $10 billion

------

**5) If the marginal propensity to consume is 0.9, then
the tax multiplier will be:**

a) less than 10.

b) impossible to determine

c) greater than 10.

d) zero, because there is no multiplier effect from taxes.

Suppose that the behavior of households, firms and the
government in an economy is determined by the following
equations:
C=30+0.75Yd
II = 15
G = 10
T=30
TR=10
The full employment level of output in the economy is:
YFE = 300

form of AD = a + bY, where a and b are numbers):
ii. What is the equilibrium level of output? YE =

1. A real Keynesian model of a mixed economy with a
marginal propensity to consume equal to .9 produces an equilibrium
level of $2400 billion that is $600 billion below a full employment
level of output.
A) What change in government spending would bring
about full employment? Be sure to calculate the government spending
multiplier.
B) The resulting increase in real output have driven
up real interests rates from 3% to 4% and those higher real
interest rates reduced investment...

1. Suppose the United States economy is represented by the
following equations: Z= C + I + G , C = 500 + 0.5Yd, Yd = Y − T T =
600, I = 300, G = 2000, Where, Z is demand for goods and services,
Yd is disposable income, T is taxes, I is investment and G is
government spending. Y is income/production. (a) Assume that the
economy is in equilibrium. What does it mean in terms of the...

Imagine an economy where an additional injection of $10
billion in export sales results in national income increasing by
$25 billion. There is a marginal propensity to save of 0.19 and a
marginal propensity to tax of 0.18. What is the marginal propensity
to import?
Imagine an economy where:
Autonomous expenditure is $40, equilibrium national income is
$100, full employment output is $150, the marginal propensity to
consume is 0.6, the size of the multiplier is 2.5

1. In the Solow model without exogenous technological change,
per capita income will grow in the long term as
long as the country has an initial level of capital below the
steady state level of capital (k o < k ⋅)

Consider a closed economy to which the Keynesian-cross analysis
applies. Consumption is given by the equation C = 200 + MPC(Y – T).
Planned investment (I) is 300, government spending (G) is 300 and
taxes (T) is 300. Assume MPC is equal to 2/3.
(a) If Y is 1,500, what is planned spending? What is inventory
accumulation or decumulation? Is equilibrium Y higher or lower than
