Slide1:  After studying this chapter, you should be able to: Understand how macroeconomic equilibrium is determined in the aggregate expenditure model. Discuss the determinants of the four components of aggregate expenditure and define the marginal propensity to consume and the marginal propensity to save. Use a 45E-line diagram to illustrate macroeconomic equilibrium. Calculate a numerical example of macroeconomic equilibrium. Define the multiplier effect and use it to calculate changes in equilibrium GDP. Understand the relationship between the aggregate demand curve and aggregate expenditure. LEARNING OBJECTIVES In this chapter, we will focus on exploring the reasons for fluctuations in total spending in the economy. Output and Expenditure in the Short Run:  Output and Expenditure in the Short Run In this chapter, we explore the causes of the business cycle by examining the effect of fluctuations in total spending (i.e., aggregate expenditure) on real GDP. Aggregate expenditure (AE) The total amount of spending in the economy: the sum of consumption, planned investment, government purchases, and net exports. Output and Expenditure in the Short Run:  Output and Expenditure in the Short Run During some years, AE increases about as much as does the production of goods and services. In this case, most firms sell about what they expected to sell and they will remain production and employment unchanged. During other years, AE increases more than the production. Firms will increase production and hire more workers. However, during some year, AE didn’t increase as much as total production, and firms cut back on production and laid off workers. The Aggregate Expenditure Model:  The Aggregate Expenditure Model Aggregate expenditure model A macroeconomic model that focuses on the relationship between total spending and real GDP, assuming the price level is constant. It is used to study the business cycle involving the interaction of many economic variables. The key idea of AE model is that in any particular year, the level of GDP is determined mainly by the level of AE that have several components. The Aggregate Expenditure Model:  The Aggregate Expenditure Model Economists began to study the relationship bw fluctuations in AE and fluctuations in GDP during the Great depression of the 1930s. In 1936, John M. Keynes systematically analyzed this relationship in his famous book (The general theory of …..) and identified four categories of AE that together equal to GDP (these are the same four categories). The Aggregate Expenditure Model:  The Aggregate Expenditure Model Aggregate Expenditure Consumption (C): Spending by HHs on G&S such as furniture, food, etc. Planned Investment (I): Planned spending by firms on capital goods, such as machinery, buildings, etc. or by HHs on new houses. Government Purchases (G): Spending by local, state, and federal governments on G&S, such as building airport, highway, and salaries of gov. employees. Net Exports (NX): Spending by foreign firms and hhs on G&S produced in the US minus spending by US firms and HHs on G&S produced in other countries. The Aggregate Expenditure Model:  The Aggregate Expenditure Model The Difference between Planned Investment and Actual Investment The amount of that firms plan to spend on investment can be different from the amount they actually spend. The reason is that we need to consider inventories: Inventories Goods that have been produced, but not yet sold. Changes in inventories are included as part of investment spending. Assume that the amount businesses plan to spend on inventories may be different from the amount they actually spend. The Aggregate Expenditure Model:  The Aggregate Expenditure Model (Conti.) Changes in inventories depend on sales of goods, which firms cannot always forecast with perfect accuracy. E.g., an auto company may produce 15,000 cars and expect to sell them all. If it does sell all 15,000, its inventories will be unchanged, but if it sells only 10,000 it will have an unplanned increase in inventories. Hence, for the economy as a whole, we can say that actual investment spending will be greater (less) than planned IS when there is an unplanned increase (decrease) in inventories. Actual investment will equal planned investment only when there is no unplanned change in inventories. The Aggregate Expenditure Model:  The Aggregate Expenditure Model Macroeconomic Equilibrium is similar to microeconomic equilibrium (demand=supply of a product, in which the quantity of apples produced and sold will not change unless the demand or supply of this good changes. For the economy as a whole, macro equilibrium occurs where total spending equals to total production, that is, Aggregate Expenditure = GDP The Aggregate Expenditure Model:  The Aggregate Expenditure Model Adjustments to Macroeconomic Equilibrium: sometimes the economy is in macro equilibrium and sometimes it isn’t. The Aggregate Expenditure Model:  The Aggregate Expenditure Model Adjustments to Macro Equilibrium Increases and decreases in AE cause the year-to-year fluctuations in GDP. Economists forecast what will happen to each component of AE. If they forecast that AE will decline in the future, that is equivalent to forecasting that GDP will decline and that the economy will enter a recession. Individuals and firms closely watch these forecasts because fluctuations in GDP can have dramatic effects on wages, profits, and employment. When economists forecast that AE is likely to decline and the economy is headed for a recession, the gov. may implement macro policies to head off the decline in AE and avoid the recession. Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy:  Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy:  Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy Consumption Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy:  Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy Consumption The five most important variables that determine the level of consumption CURRENT DISPOSABLE INCOME is the most important determinant of consumption. Disposable income is the income remaining to HHs after paying the personal income tax and receiving gov. transfer payments. For most HHs, the higher (lower) their DI, the more (the less) they spend. Aggregate (macro) consumption is the total of the consumption of US HHs. The main reason for the general upward trend in consumption is that DI has followed a similar upward trend. Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy:  Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy Consumption HOUSEHOLD WEALTH is the value of its assets minus the value of its liabilities. Assets include home, stock and bond holdings, and bank accounts. Liabilities include any loans that it owes. When the wealth of HHs increases (decreases), consumption increases (decreases). Since shares of stock are an important component of HHs’ wealth, consumption should increase with stock prices. A recent estimate of the effects of changes in wealth on consumption indicates a permanent one-dollar increase in wealth induces 4-5 cents increase in consumption. Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy:  Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy Consumption EXPECTED FUTURE INCOME Most people prefer to keep their consumption fairly stable and smooth over time, even if their income fluctuates significantly. Both current income and expected future income need to be considered to determine current consumption. THE PRICE LEVEL Changes in the price level affect consumption mainly through their effect on HHs’ wealth. As the price level rises, the real value of HHs wealth declines and so will HHs consumption. Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy:  Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy Consumption THE INTEREST RATE When the interest rate is high, the reward to saving is increased and HHs are likely to save more and spend less. Note that consumption depends on the real IR that corrects the nominal IR for the impact of inflation. Spending on durable goods (such as autos, one category of consumption) is most likely to be affected by the interest rate because a high real IR increases the cost of spending financed by borrowing. Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy:  Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy THE CONSUMPTION FUNCTION Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy:  Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy THE CONSUMPTION FUNCTION Consumption function The relationship between consumption spending and disposable income. Marginal propensity to consume (MPC) The slope of the consumption function: the amount by which consumption spending increases when disposable income increases. Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy:  Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy The Relationship between Consumption and National Income Shift to discuss the relationship between aggregate consumption spending and GDP, rather than disposable income. We are interested in using the AE model to explain fluctuations in real GDP. Note that GDP and national income are almost the same. Note that Disposable income = National income – Net taxes where Net taxes=taxes minus gov transfer payments. Or, rearranging the equation: National income = GDP = Disposable income + Net taxes Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy:  Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy The Relationship between Consumption and National Income Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy:  Income, Consumption, and Saving HHs either (1) spend their income, (2) save it, or (3) use it to pay taxes. For the economy as a whole, National income = Consumption + Saving + Taxes, Change in national income = Change in consumption + Change in saving + Change in taxes Using symbols, where Y represents national income (and GDP), C represents consumption, S represents saving, and T represents taxes, we can write: and, Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy:  Income, Consumption, and Saving To simplify, we can assume that taxes are always a constant amount, in which case ΔT = 0, so that: Marginal propensity to save (MPS) The change in saving divided by the change in income. or, 1 = MPC + MPS Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy Slide24:  Calculating the Marginal Propensity to Consume and the Marginal Propensity to Save Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy:  Planned Investment Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy:  Planned Investment The four most important variables that determine the level of investment are: EXPECTATIONS OF FUTURE PROFITABILITY Investment goods (equipment, office buildings) are long-lived. A firm is unlikely to make a new investment unless it is optimistic that the demand for it product will remain strong for several years. The optimism or pessimism of firms is an important determinant of investment. THE INTEREST RATE A significant fraction of investment is financed by borrowing. HHs also borrow to finance most of their spending on new houses. The higher the interest rate, the more expensive it becomes for firms or hhs to borrow. Holding other factors constant, there is an inverse relationship bw the real IR and investment. Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy:  Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy Planned Investment TAXES Firms focus on the profits that remain after paying taxes. A reduction in the corporate income tax on the profits corporations earn increases the after-tax profitability of investment. Investment tax incentives (it provides firms with a tax reduction when they spend on new investment goods) also increase investment spending. CASH FLOW The difference between the cash revenues received by the firm and the cash spending by the firm. Most firms use their own funds to finance investment goods instead of borrowing outside. The largest contributor to CF is profit. The more profitable a firm is, the greater its CF and the greater its ability to finance investment. Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy:  Government Purchases Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy:  Net Exports: calculating by taking the value of spending by foreign HHs and firms on… and subtracting the value… Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy Determining the Level of Aggregate Expenditure in the Economy:  Net Exports The three most important variables that determine the level of net exports are: THE PRICE LEVEL IN US RELATIVE TO THE PRICE LEVELS IN OTHER COUNTRIES: If prices in US increase more slowly than the prices of other countries, the demand for US products increases relative to other countries. THE GROWTH RATE OF GDP IN US RELATIVE TO THE GROWTH RATES OF GDP IN OTHER COUNTRIES When incomes (GDP) rise faster in US than in other countries, US consumers’ purchases of foreign G&S will increase faster than foreign consumers’ purchases of US G&S. THE EXCHANGE RATE BETWEEN THE DOLLAR AND OTHER CURRENCIES An increase in the value of the US dollar will reduce exports and increase imports.

If firms don’t cut back on their production promptly, they will accumulate excess inventories. As a result, even if spending quickly returns to its normal levels, firms will have to sell their excess inventories before they can return to producing at normal levels. This possibility can explain why a brief decline in AE can result in a fairly long recession. Hence, efficient systems of inventories control help make recessions shorter and less severe. Slide37:  Business Attempts to Control Inventories, Then … and Now Dell Computer uses supply chain management to keep its inventories low and be a low-cost seller of computers. Dell doesn’t begin to assemble a new computer until it receives an order from a customer. As a result, it holds no inventories of finished computers. Dell still must hold some inventories of computer components. Dell developed a system of SCM by which it quickly communicates orders to its suppliers and then quickly respond to sales declines. A Numerical Example of Macroeconomic Equilibrium:  A Numerical Example of Macroeconomic Equilibrium Don’t Confuse Aggregate Expenditure with Consumption Spending The Multiplier Effect:  The Multiplier Effect The Multiplier Effect:  The Multiplier Effect Autonomous expenditure Expenditure that does not depend on the level of GDP. Planned investment, gov. spending, and net exports are all autonomous expenditures. Note that consumption also includes an autonomous component. E.g., if hhs decide to spend more of their incomes and save less at every level of income there will be an autonomous increase in consumption. Multiplier The increase in equilibrium real GDP divided by the increase in autonomous expenditure. Multiplier effect The process by which an increase in autonomous expenditure leads to a larger increase in real GDP. The Multiplier Effect:  The Multiplier Effect Slide42:  The Multiplier in Reverse The Great Depression of the 1930s The multiplier effect contributed to the very high levels of unemployment during the Great Depression. The Multiplier Effect:  A Formula for the Multiplier The total change in GDP =$100+MPC*$100 +MPC*MPC*$100+….. The Multiplier Effect The Multiplier Effect:  The Multiplier Effect Slide45:  Using the Multiplier Formula Slide46:  Using the Multiplier Formula The Aggregate Demand Curve:  The Aggregate Demand Curve When demand for a product increases, firms will usually respond by increasing production, but they are also likely to increase prices. So far, we have fixed the price level to be constant. In fact, as we will see, increases (decreases) in the price level will cause AE decrease (rise). There are 3 reasons for this inverse relationship between changes in the price level and changes in AE: The Aggregate Demand Curve:  The Aggregate Demand Curve A rising PL decreases consumption by decreasing the real value of household wealth. If the PL in US rises relative to the PLs in other countries, US exports will become relatively more expensive and foreign imports will become relatively less expensive, causing net exports to fall. When prices rise, firms and hhs need more money to finance buying and selling. If the Fed doesn’t increase money supply, the result will increase the IR and then reduce investment as firms and hhs borrow less to build new factories, ect., and new houses, respectively.
