9 2 Short Answer  70 points Pg. 9 PLEASE NOTE: In order to receive full credit, in calculating growth rates you must use the logarithmic or exponential formulas from the classroom handout. 1. (14 pts.) Consider the economy of the country Microvilleshire. Its shortrun aggregate supply and aggregate demand equations are described as follows: SRAS: CPI = Y AD: CPI = 60 4Y (a) Suppose Microvilleshire is in longrun equilibrium. (2 pts.) What is output in the longrun? SOLUTION: We are told Microvilleshire is in longrun equilibrium, so we can just find the shortrun equilibrium, and we know that s the same as the longrun one Y = 60 4Y Y = 4 (2 pts.) What is CPI in the longrun? SOLUTION: CPI = = 44 (3 pts.) Draw a graph of aggregate supply and aggregate demand that illustrates AD, SRAS, and LRAS. SOLUTION: The graph should have CPI on the yaxis and Y on the xaxis, and it should include SRAS, which has intercept 20 and slope 6, AD, which has intercept 60 and slope 4, as well as LRAS, which is vertical. All three lines should cross at Y = 4 and CPI = 44. (b) Now suppose that Microvilleshire s main trade partner, Macrovilleshire, changes their trade policy in a way that decreases their demand for Microvilleshire products. This shifts AD such that for every level of output, the CPI is decreased by 30. (1 pt.) Does this result in a inflationary gap, a recessionary gap, or no output gap of any sort? SOLUTION: AD falls Y falls recessionary gap. (2 pts.) If you think there is an inflationary or recessionary gap, what is the magnitude? If you think there is no output gap, explain why. SOLUTION: The new AD curve is CPI = 30 4Y. Setting SRAS=AD, we get 30 4Y = Y Y = 1. So, the recessionary gap is 4 1 = 3. (1 pt.) Change your graph above in (a) to include the new AD and the inflationary or recessionary gap you found. SOLUTION: There should be a forth line added to the graph: the new AD curve, which has intercept 30 and slope 4. It should cross the old SRAS line at Y = 1 and CPI = 26. (c) (3 pts.) What is the new longrun equilibrium output and longrun equilibrium CPI? SOLUTION: Longrun output is still Y = 4. The new longrun prices will be CPI = = 14.
10 Pg (14 pts.) Consider a closed economy with three types of goods: consumption goods, investment goods, and governmentpurchased goods. In 2000, data on these goods is given by: 2000 Average Price Quantity Consumption goods: $ Investment goods: $ Government goods: $ After 2000, the Federal Reserve decreases the money supply, and the government engages in expansionary fiscal policy. This leads to the following data for 2001: 2001 Average Price Quantity Consumption goods: $ Investment goods: $ Government goods: $ (a) (2 pts.) What is nominal GDP in 2000 and 2001? SOLUTION: GDP in 2000 = = GDP in 2001 = = (b) (1 pt.) Using base year 2000, what is real GDP in 2001? SOLUTION: Real GDP in 2001 using 2000 as base year = = (1 pt.) Using base year 2001, what is real GDP in 2000? SOLUTION: Real GDP in 2000 using 2001 as base year = = (c) (6 pts.) Using the GDP deflator as your price index, what is the chainweighted inflation rate between 2000 and 2001? SOLUTION: Using 2000 as base year, GDP deflator in 2000 = = 100 Using 2000 as base year, GDP deflator in 2001 = = Using 2000 as base year, inflation = ln ( ) = %. Using 2001 as base year, GDP deflator in 2000 = = Using 2001 as base year, GDP deflator in 2001 = = 100. Using 2001 as base year, inflation = ln ( ) = %. So, chainweighted inflation = = %. (d) (1 pt.) Write the equation that relates the velocity of money (call it V ) to the money supply and nominal GDP. SOLUTION: M V = P Y V = P Y M = nominal GDP money supply (3 pts.) Suppose that in 2000, the money supply was $224,000. Assume that the velocity of money is the same in 2000 and Use the values of nominal GDP you found in part (a) for 2000 and 2001 to calculate the money supply in SOLUTION: V = nominal GDP money supply = = 5. Since V is the same in 2001, we have M 5 = nominal GDP M = =
11 Pg (17 pts.) Consider an economy in equilibrium with the following initial structure: Equilibrium GDP = Y = 10, 000 MP C = 3 4 Income tax rate = t = 1 9 Reserve ratio = rr = 0.10 The desired currency to deposit ratio is 15%, so c = 0.15 Interest rate = i = 0.04 (= 4%) Money demand is characterized by M D = i (in millions of dollars, where i is written as a decimal. For example, if i = 0.07, then M D = = 480). Assume consumption takes the standard form C = A + MP C (Y T ), and taxes take the form T = T a + t Y. A, T a, t, G, X, Im, and MP C do not change when the interest rate changes. However, investment does change based on the interest rate. Specifically, I = i. (Again, i is written as a decimal. For example, if i = 0.07, then I = = 650.) (a) Given that the economy is in equilibrium: (2 pts.) What is the money supply? (Hint: consider the market for money and the equilibrium condition that relates M D to M S ) SOLUTION: M S = M D = = 510 (2 pts.) What is the monetary base? SOLUTION: B = M S 1+c = = c+rr 0.25 (b) (2 pts.) Now suppose that the central bank sells 5 million dollars worth of bonds on the open market. What is the change in money supply? SOLUTION: M S = 1+c 1.15 c+rr B = 0.25 ( 5) = 23 (c) (2 pts.) What is the new interest rate? SOLUTION: M S = M D = i i = (d) (4 pts.) What is the new equilibrium Y that results from the open market operation described in parts (b) and (c)? (Hint: first, find how I changes.) SOLUTION: I = ( ) ( ) = 115 Y = I 1 MP C (1 t) = = 345 Y = 9655 (e) (5 pts.) Going back to the initial equilibrium (i.e., before the open market operations in (b) happened), suppose that net exports decreases by 100 and G increases by 20. The central bank wants to keep output unchanged (i.e., wants to keep Y = 10, 000). How many million dollars of bonds should they buy or sell? SOLUTION: We want the change in I to offset the change in NX and G. If the Fed does nothing, we will have AAE = = 80. So, we want I = 80 to offset the changes. This means we want a new level of investment of I = ( )+80 = 880. If I = 880, we need an interest rate of 880 = i i = In order to have i = 0.024, we need M S = = 526. Thus, we need a change in M S of M S = = 16. This means we needs a change in B of B = M S 1+c c+rr of bonds. = = Thus, the Fed needs to buy million dollars worth
12 4. (25 pts.) Suppose an economy has the following data: Pg. 12 Year Y Y D C I G X Im T NS The consumption function and the tax function are the same in every year. Additionally, imports are a function of disposable income. In particular, the import function is Im = a + b Y D where a and b are some numbers. This function also stays the same every year. (a) (2 pts.) What is Y (GDP or output) and Y D (disposable income) in 2004 and 2005? SOLUTION: Y = C + I + G + X Im. In 2004, Y = = In 2005, Y = = Y D = Y T. In 2004, Y D = = In 2005, Y D = = (b) (2 pts.) What are national savings in 2004 and 2005? SOLUTION: NS = P S + GS = Y T C + T G = Y C G. In 2004, NS = = 250. In 2005, NS = = 350. (c) (Hint: for the three sections in part (c), use the data for 2004 and 2005.) (3 pts.) What is the consumption function? (Hint: your answer should be of the form C = A + MP C Y D.) SOLUTION: The two equations to solve are: 700 = A + MP C 1000 and 800 = A + MP C These give MP C = 0.5 and A = 200. Thus, the consumption function is C = Y D. (3 pts.) What is the tax function? (Hint: your answer should be of the form T = T a + t Y.) SOLUTION: The two equations to solve are: 100 = T a + t 1100 and 150 = T a + t These give t = 0.20 and T a = 120. Thus, the tax function is T = Y. (3 pts.) What is the import function? (Hint: as above, your answer should be of the form Im = a + b Y D.) SOLUTION: The two equations to solve are: 150 = a+b 1000 and 170 = a+b These give b = 0.10 and a = 50. Thus, the import function is Im = Y D. (d) (Hint: you should be using the three functions you found in part (c), along with the data from the table for 2006, to help solve for Y.) SOLUTION: Y = C + I + G + X Im Y = A + MP C (Y (T a + t Y )) + I + A MP C Ta+I+G+X a+b Ta G + X (a + b (Y (T a + t Y ))) Y = 1 MP C (1 t)+b (1 t) (2 pts.) What is the multiplier for 2006? 1 SOLUTION: From above, the multiplier is 1 MP C (1 t)+b (1 t) = (2 pts.) What is AAE for 2006? SOLUTION: From above, AAE= A MP C T a + I + G + X a + b T a = ( 120) ( 120) = (1 0.2)+0.10(1 0.2) =
13 (1 pt.) What is equilibrium GDP for 2006? SOLUTION: Y = = Pg. 13 (e) (2 pts.) What is the trade balance in equilibrium in 2006? SOLUTION: Trade balance= X Im = 300 ( ( ( ))) = (f) (3 pts.) Now suppose that the government changes the tax policy by decreasing T a by 80. By how much does equilibrium GDP change? (Hint: use the formula you found for Y in part (d).) SOLUTION: Y = AAE 1 MP C (1 t)+b(1 t) = MP C Ta+b Ta 1 MP C (1 t)+b(1 t) = 0.5( 80)+0.1( 80) 1 0.5(1 0.2)+0.10(1 0.2) = (g) Return to part (d) (i.e., ignore the change in part (f)). Suppose between 2006 and 2007, MP C changes to 0.70, and t changes to 0 (no income tax). (1 pt.) What is the new multiplier in 2007? SOLUTION: Multiplier = 1 1 MP C (1 t)+b(1 t) = (1 0)+0.10(1 0) = 2.5 (1 pt.) Assume AAE is the same in 2007 as it was in 2006 (from part (d)). What is equilibrium GDP in 2007? SOLUTION: Y = = 2370 NOTE: AAE does change. It s new value is AAE = A MP C T a +I +G+X a+b T a = ( 120) ( 120) = 972 Y = = 2430
