Solution Preview

According to the Keynesian Cross model, the expenditure of households, firms, foreigners and the government on domestic goods and services is expressed as E= C + I + G + NX. Consumption (C) can further be expressed as C + b(Y − T ), where b is the marginal propensity to consume, Y is income and T is taxes.

Thus we have
E = C + I + G + NX ---> E = C + b(Y -; T )+ I + G + NX

If we draw a graph of these with expenditure on the vertical axis, equilibrium is represented as a 45-degree line (slope of ...
