    Aggregate Demand & Supply

    IS-LM analysis/curves

    Steady-state interest rates

    Now we will solve for the steady state in a calibration of the US economy in 2000. In this problem, you will assume that the rate of growth of the work force is n = 0.017 and there is no exogenous technological progress. The aggregate production function for the US economy in 2000 is Y = (11.5)K 1/3 L 2/3 . The units are bill

    Asset prices effect banks

    According to Gerald Baker, columnist for the London Financial Times, November 23, 1999, "In the United States, banks are, by whichever measure chosen, in unusually good shape for this stage of an expansion.

    Aggregate Demand Curve

    The question asked that suppose that the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries raises oil prices by 50 percent in 2005. What effect will thishave on the U.S. Aggregate demand curve? On the U.S. Short-run aggregate supply curve?

    Fishing, congestion, government fees, privatization, allocation of fishermen

    Please see the attachment. I require very specific explanations for each part. If necessary, assumptions may be made but please make these explicit and make sure they are reasonable so that I can follow what you did. Also make the solutions as technical as possible. (See attached file for full problem description)

    Short and Long run factors

    Answers to questions: Regarding the economy's adjustment process, use the AD/AS model to: a) Show the short-run effects of an increase in desired saving(assuming that the economy is initially in a long-run equilibrium with Y* = Y). b) Describe the adjustment process that brings the economy to its new long-run equilibriu

    Keynesian Theory

    Why can output rise "without inflation" in the "Keynesian" range of the aggregate supply curve?

    Change in Autonomous Spending

    Please see attached. --- 2. (A Change in Autonomous Spending) Suppose that when aggregate output equals zero, consumption equals $100 billion, autonomous investment equals $200 billion, government purchases equal $50 billion, and net exports equal $50 billion. Suppose also that MPC is 0.9 and MPM is 0.1. a) Construct a t

    Relationship between consumption expenditures and inventory

    Since inventories are not a large component of GDP, how can they affect GDP so sharply? How will the replenishment cycle affect GDP in the near future? I know that there is a relationship between consumption expenditures and inventories and that there is an interdependence, but I am not sure how to answer this. It most likely

    Basic Macroeconomics question (3)

    This is a question from a past exam paper in Macroeconomics. Unfortunately I haven't been able to get an answer sheet for this paper so I am looking for a "model answer" (if such a thing exists!) to the question for revision. Under what circumstances would a rise in aggregate demand have little effect on real national income?

    Basic Macroeconomics question

    Consider a closed economy, with fixed prices, represented by the following set of equations: D = C + I + G C = cYd Yd = (1 - t)Y t = 0.25, c = 0.8 I = 700 - 100r G = 300 L = 2500 + 2Y - 500r Where, D is the aggregate demand, C is consumption, Yd is the disposable income, t is the tax rate, I is investment, r is

    Aggregate supply and demand

    "The idea of the Fed having to choose between hawk and dove policies after an adverse supply shock is plain silly. All the Fed has to do is shift the curve back to its original position, which would prevent both recession and inflation. Do you agree? Why or why not?

    Macroeconomic Prescription for the Near Future

    Subject: modern graph and prediction of aggregate supply and demand curve Details: write a paper describing my assessment of the current aggregate demand and aggregate suppy curves; my prediction and prescription for the near future. sources must be sited. The ad/as curves reasonably coincide with reality, include graphics, ec

    Open-Market Operations and Aggregate Demand

    Beneficial and Adverse Supply Shocks

    What are supply shocks? Distinguish between beneficial and adverse supply shocks. Do such shocks affect the short-run supply curve, the long-run supply curve, or both? What is the resulting impact on potential GDP?

    Classical Theory

    A classical economist spends a good deal of time worrying that: A) policies will overshoot their output marks and can therefore never move GDP closer to its potential. B) government spending will crowd private spending and investment out of the market. C) stabilization policy is never sufficiently "fine-tuned." D)

    Ceteris paribus and comparative statics

    Ceteris paribus and comparative statics are commonly vehicles for economic analysis. Explain using the dramatic, large scale expansion of soy bean purchases by China (2003, 2004 and beyond).
