Question 1
Discuss two of the following:
a)
Paasche and Laspeyeres Indices
b)
c)
The money multiplier
Question 2
Consider the following numerical version of the IS-LM model:
C = 296+0.6YD
YD = Y-T
Y = tY
t = 0.4
I = 200+0.2Y-1000i
G=200
(M/P)d = 0.5Y-2500i
(M/P)s = 500
a)
b)
c)
c)
e)
g)
h)
i)
Find the equation for the IS curve
Find an equation for the LM curve
Solve for equilibrium output (Y) and the equilibrium interest rate (i).
Solve for the equilibrium levels of consumption (C) and investment (I).
Now assume that the government decides to increase the tax rate (t) to 60%,
calculate what happens to the equilibrium values of Y, i, C and I.
Using diagrams show graphically the impact of this policy on output and the
interest rate. Explain in words how this policy affects output, interest rates,
investment and consumption.
Setting all variables back to their original levels, calculate the new equilibrium
values for Y, i, C and I if the Central Bank increased the money supply from 500
to 600.
Using diagrams, show graphically the impact of this policy on output and the
interest rate. Explain in words how this policy affects output, interest rates,
investment and consumption.
