The Composition of GDP:  The Composition of GDP 3-1 The Composition of GDP:  The Composition of GDP Consumption (C) refers to the goods and services purchased by consumers. Investment (I), sometimes called fixed investment, is the purchase of capital goods. It is the sum of nonresidential investment and residential investment. Government Spending (G) refers to the purchases of goods and services by the federal, state, and local governments. It does not include government transfers, nor interest payments on the government debt. The Composition of GDP:  The Composition of GDP Imports (IM) are the purchases of foreign goods and services by consumers, business firms, and the U.S. government. Exports (X) are the purchases of U.S. goods and services by foreigners. The Composition of GDP:  The Composition of GDP Net exports (X  IM) is the difference between exports and imports, also called the trade balance. Inventory investment is the difference between production and sales. The Demand for Goods:  The Demand for Goods The total demand for goods is written as: The symbol “” means that this equation is an identity, or definition. Under the assumption that the economy is closed, X = IM = 0, then: 3-2 The Demand for Goods:  The Demand for Goods To determine Z, some simplifications must be made: Assume that all firms produce the same good, which can then be used by consumers for consumption, by firms for investment, or by the government. Assume that firms are willing to supply and demand in that market Assume that the economy is closed, that it does not trade with the rest of the world, then both exports and imports are zero. Consumption (C):  Consumption (C) Disposable income, (YD), is the income that remains once consumers have paid taxes and received transfers from the government. The function C(YD) is called the consumption function. It is a behavioral equation, that is, it captures the behavior of consumers. Disposable income is defined as: Consumption (C):  Consumption (C) A more specific form of the consumption function is this linear relation: This function has two parameters, c0 and c1: c1 is called the (marginal) propensity to consume, or the effect of an additional dollar of disposable income on consumption. c0 is the intercept of the consumption function. Consumption (C):  Consumption (C) Figure 3 - 1 Consumption and Disposable Income Consumption increases with disposable income, but less than one for one. Investment (I):  Investment (I) Variables that depend on other variables within the model are called endogenous. Variables that are not explain within the model are called exogenous. Investment here is taken as given, or treated as an exogenous variable: Government Spending (G):  Government Spending (G) Government spending, G, together with taxes, T, describes fiscal policy—the choice of taxes and spending by the government. We shall assume that G and T are also exogenous for two reasons: Governments do not behave with the same regularity as consumers or firms. Macroeconomists must think about the implications of alternative spending and tax decisions of the government. The Determination of Equilibrium Output:  The Determination of Equilibrium Output Equilibrium in the goods market requires that production, Y, be equal to the demand for goods, Z: Then: The equilibrium condition is that, production, Y, be equal to demand. Demand, Z, in turn depends on income, Y, which itself is equal to production. 3-3 Using Algebra:  Using Algebra The equilibrium equation can be manipulated to derive some important terms: Autonomous spending and the multiplier: The term is that part of the demand for goods that does not depend on output, it is called autonomous spending. If the government ran a balanced budget, then T=G. Because the propensity to consume (c 1 ) is between zero and one, is a number greater than one. For this reason, this number is called the multiplier. Using a Graph:  Using a Graph Figure 3 - 2 Equilibrium in the Goods Market Equilibrium output is determined by the condition that production be equal to demand. First, plot production as a function of income. Second, plot demand as a function of income. In Equilibrium, production equals demand. Using a Graph:  Using a Graph An increase in autonomous spending has a more than one-for-one effect on equilibrium output. Figure 3 - 3 The Effects of an Increase in Autonomous Spending on Output Using a Graph:  Using a Graph The first-round increase in demand, shown by the distance AB equals $1 billion. This first-round increase in demand leads to an equal increase in production, or $1 billion, which is also shown by the distance in AB. This first-round increase in production leads to an equal increase in income, shown by the distance in BC, also equal to $1 billion. Using a Graph:  Using a Graph The second-round increase in demand, shown by the distance in CD, equals $1 billion times the propensity to consume. This second-round increase in demand leads to an equal increase in production, also shown by the distance DC, and thus an equal increase in income, shown by the distance DE. The third-round increase in demand equals $c1 billion, times c1, the marginal propensity to consume; it is equal to $c1 x c1 = $ c12billion. Using a Graph:  Using a Graph Following this logic, the total increase in production after, say, n rounds, equals $1 billion times the sum: 1 + c1 + c12 + …+ c1n Such a sum is called a geometric series. Using Words:  Using Words To summarize: An increase in demand leads to an increase in production and a corresponding increase in income. The end result is an increase in output that is larger than the initial shift in demand, by a factor equal to the multiplier. To estimate the value of the multiplier, and more generally, to estimate behavioral equations and their parameters, economists use econometrics—a set of statistical methods used in economics. How Long Does It Take for Output to Adjust?:  How Long Does It Take for Output to Adjust? Describing formally the adjustment of output over time is what economists call the dynamics of adjustment. Suppose that firms make decisions about their production levels at the beginning of each quarter. Now suppose consumers decide to spend more, that they increase c0.. Having observed an increase in demand, firms are likely to set a higher level of production in the following quarter. In response to an increase in consumer spending, output does not jump to the new equilibrium, but rather increases over time. Slide22:  A forecast error is the difference between the actual value of GDP and the value that had been forecast by economists one quarter earlier. The consumer confidence index is computed from a monthly survey of about 5,000 households who are asked how confident they are about both current and future economic conditions. Consumer Confidence and the 1990-1991 Recession Slide23:  Consumer Confidence and the 1990-1991 Recession Investment Equals Saving: An Alternative Way of Thinking about Goods-Market Equilibrium:  Investment Equals Saving: An Alternative Way of Thinking about Goods-Market Equilibrium Saving is the sum of private plus public saving. Private saving (S), is saving by consumers. Public saving equals taxes minus government spending. If T > G, the government is running a budget surplus—public saving is positive. If T < G, the government is running a budget deficit—public saving is negative. 3-4 Investment Equals Saving: An Alternative Way of Thinking about Goods-Market Equilibrium:  Investment Equals Saving: An Alternative Way of Thinking about Goods-Market Equilibrium The equation above states that equilibrium in the goods market requires that investment equals saving—the sum of private plus public saving. This equilibrium condition for the goods market is called the IS relation. What firms want to invest must be equal to what people and the government want to save. Slide26:  Consumption and saving decisions are one and the same. The term (1c1) is called the propensity to save. In equilibrium: Rearranging terms, we get the same result as before: Investment Equals Saving: An Alternative Way of Thinking about Goods-Market Equilibrium Is the Government Omnipotent? A Warning:  Is the Government Omnipotent? A Warning Changing government spending or taxes may be far from easy. The responses of consumption, investment, imports, etc, are hard to assess with much certainty. Anticipations are a likely matter. Achieving a given level of output may come with unpleasant side effects. Budget deficits and public debt may have adverse implications in the long run. 3-5 The Paradox of Saving The paradox of saving is that as people attempt to save more, the result is both a decline in output and unchanged saving.
