7 SHORT ANSWER. Write your answer in the space provided or on a separate sheet of paper. 31) Compare the policy prescriptions of Keynesian, Classical, and Monetarist economists. 32) In the figure above, illustrate the effect of an increase in the U.S. interest rate. What is the effect on the exchange rate? 33) In the economy of Jokey Island, autonomous consumption expenditure is $60 million, and the marginal propensity to consume is 0.6. Investment is $110 million, government expenditure is $70 million, and there are no income taxes. Investment and government expenditure are constant they do not vary with income. The island does not trade with the rest of the world. a) Draw the aggregate expenditure curve. b) What is the island's autonomous aggregate expenditure? c) What is the size of the multiplier in Jokey Island's economy? d) What is the island's aggregate planned expenditure and what is happening to inventories when real GDP is $800 million? e) What is the economy's equilibrium aggregate expenditure? 7

8 Leisure (hours) Real GDP (2000 dollars) 0 2, , , , ) The people of Palm Island are willing to work 80 hours a day for a real wage rate of $4 an hour. Then each dollar increase in the real wage, they are willing to work 10 additional hours a day. Palm Island's production possibilities are in the table above. a) Draw Palm Island's demand for labor curve. b) Draw Palm Island's supply of labor curve. c) What are the full-employment equilibrium real wage rate and quantity of labor in Palm Island's economy? d) What is Palm Island's potential GDP? 35) Friedmania is a country in which the quantity theory of money operates. The country has a constant population, capital stock, and technology so real GDP does not change. In 2006, real GDP was $500 million, the price level, measured by the GDP deflator, was 150 and the velocity of circulation of money was 10. (Because the price level is measured by the GDP deflator, it must be divided by 100 before it is used in the equation of exchange.) In 2007, the quantity of money increased by 20 percent. a) What was the quantity of money in 2006? b) What was the velocity of circulation in 2007? c) What was the price level in 2007? 8

They prescribe activist fiscal and monetary policy to drive the economy to full employment. Classical economists believe the economy is self-regulating and will always tend towards full employment. Their main policy initiatives center on removing tax created disincentives for growth. Monetarists call for low taxes and consistent money growth because Monetarists believe that recessions are the result of fluctuations in the quantity of money. 9

10 Answer Key Testname: FINAL 32) The figure above shows the effect of the increase in the U.S. interest rate. The demand for dollars increases and the demand curve shifts rightward. The supply of dollars decreases and the supply curve shifts leftward. The equilibrium exchange rate rises, to 100 yen per dollar in the figure. 10

11 Answer Key Testname: FINAL 33) a) See the figure above. Because the island does not trade with the rest of the world, net exports are zero. When net exports are zero, aggregate expenditure, or AE, is given by AE = C + I + G. Consumption equals $60 million plus 0.6 of income, so the consumption function is C = $60 million + 0.6Y, where $60 million is autonomous consumption, 0.60 is the marginal propensity to consume, and Y is real GDP which equals real income. Using the formula in the equation for aggregate expenditure gives AE = $60 million + 0.6Y + $110 million + $70 million, so the formula for aggregate expenditure is AE = $240 million + 0.6Y. b) Autonomous expenditure is expenditure that does not vary with real GDP; it is the level of aggregate expenditure if real GDP were equal to zero. In the economy of Jokey Island, if Y = 0, AE = $ , so autonomous expenditure is $240 million, shown by point A in the figure above. c) The multiplier is the amount by which a change in autonomous expenditure is multiplied to determine the change in equilibrium expenditure and real GDP. The multiplier equals 1/(1 - MPC). So in the economy of Jokey Island, the multiplier is 1/(1-0.6) = 2.5. d) When real GDP is $800 million, aggregate planned expenditure, AE, equals $ $800 million, which is $720 million. This level of aggregate planned expenditure is point B in the figure above. Because this level of aggregate planned expenditures is less than real GDP, point C in the figure, inventories increase. e) Equilibrium expenditure is the level of aggregate expenditure that occurs when aggregate planned expenditure, AE, equals real GDP. In the economy of Jokey Island equilibrium is at point E in the figure, when real GDP and aggregate expenditure equal $600 million. Equilibrium expenditure also can be calculated by solving the equation Y = $240 million + 0.6Y for Y. Start by subtracting 0.6Y from both sides to give 0.4Y = $240 million. Then divide both sides by 0.4 to obtain Y = $240 million/0.4, so that Y, which is real GDP, equals $600 million. 11

12 Answer Key Testname: FINAL 34) a) See the figure above. Palm Island's demand for labor curve is the marginal product of labor curve. The marginal product of labor for each quantity of labor employed is the change in real GDP divided by the change in quantity of labor employed. For example, 100 hours of labor employed is the midpoint between 80 and 120 hours on the production function. The 40 hors of additional labor between 80 and 100 hours produce $1,680 - $1,280 = $400 of additional real GDP. So for these 40 hours of labor, one hour will produce additional real GDP of $400/40 = $10 per hour. So the marginal product of labor is $10 per hour when 100 hours of labor are employed. The rest of the marginal products are calculated similarly and are in the figure above. b) The figure above shows the labor supply curve. c) The full-employment equilibrium real wage rate is the one at which the quantity of labor demanded equals the quantity of labor supplied so that real GDP is at its full-employment level. In the economy of Palm Island, the figure above shows that the full-employment equilibrium real wage rate is $8 per hour and the full-employment quantity of labor is 120 hours per day. d) Potential GDP is the level of real GDP at full employment. As the figure above shows, Palm Island's full employment is 120 hours per day. And the production function shows that 120 hours of labor can produce a real GDP of $1,280. So Palm Island's potential GDP is $1,280 per day. 35) a) The equation of exchange states that the quantity of money, M, multiplied by the velocity of circulation, V, equals real GDP, Y, multiplied by the price level, P. In terms of a formula, the equation of exchange is that M V = P Y. Using this formula, M = PY/V, [(150/100) $500 billion]/10 gives the quantity of money as $75 billion. b) The quantity theory of money asserts that the velocity of circulation is not influenced by the quantity of money. So the velocity of circulation remains constant at 10. c) From the equation of exchange, the price level is P = MV/Y. Because the quantity of money increased by 20 percent, the quantity of money in 2007 is $75 billion 1.2 = $90 billion. So P = [($90 billion 10)/$500 million] 100 = 180. Another way to calculate the price level in 2007 is to notice that according to the quantity theory, a change in the quantity of money has no effect on velocity and real GDP. So if the quantity of money increases by 20 percent, to balance the equation of exchange, the price level must also increase by 20 percent. So from this approach, the price level in Friedmania is , which is also equal to
