Assume that an economy is described by the IS curve Y = 3, G - 2T - 150r and the LM curve Y = 2 M/P + 100r [or r = 0.01Y (M/P)]. The investment function for this economy is 1,000-50r. The consumption function is C = (2/3)(Y - T). Long-run equilibrium output for this economy is 4,000. The price level is 1.0 and M = 1,200. a. Assume that government spending is fixed at 1,200.

Use the IS- LM model to illustrate graphically the impact of the reduction in government spending on output and interest rates. Be sure to label: i. the axes; ii. the curves; iii. the initial equilibrium values; iv. the direction the curves shift; and v. the terminal equilibrium values. 25. The monetary transmission mechanism in the IS-LM model is a process whereby an increase in the money supply increases the demand for goods and services: A) directly.

B) private economic agents are sure to believe the announcement because it is credible. C) private economic actors are likely to discount the policy because the Fed has an incentive to renege on its policy once expectations are formed.

There is a short run tradeoff between inflation and unemployment. b. Since expectations are formed rationally and the policy is credible, the Phillips curve will immediately shift upward to the right.
