NATIONAL ACCOUNTS Text - Ch. 5 - Net Domestic Product (NDP) and Gross National Product. - National Income (NI) and Disposable Income (DI). - Savings (S) and Investment (I): Measured savings are exactly equal to the measured investment. (a) With no government and closed economy (no foreign trade) G and X disappear from the GDP equation and what is left is GDP = C +I, and I = GDP C. Household savings is a part of the disposable income and in this case disposable income is equal to the national income DI = NI = GDP D since there is no government and thus no taxes and transfers. Thus households savings are equal to DI C = GDP D C. Business savings are equal to the total product produced GDP minus what was consumed by households (C) and minus what was saved by the households DI C, therefore business savings are equal to GDP C DI + C = GDP DI = D. Total private savings (S P ) are equal to business savings (D) plus households savings (GDP D C). Thus S P = GDP C = I, or S P = I. (b) In a more general case there is a government and foreign trade. Thus, GDP = C + I + G + X. Government savings (S G ) is a difference between government revenues (taxes, T ) and government purchases (G) and transfers it makes to the public (T r): S G = T (G + T r). Private savings are equal to the sum of households savings (DI C) and business savings (D). In this case disposable income is equal to the national income (NI = GDP D) minus taxes and plus transfers form the government, DI = GDP D T +T r. Thus households savings are DI C = GDP D T +T r C. If you add business savings (D) to households savings you will get total private savings: S P = D + GDP D T + T r C = GDP T + T r C. To get total savings in the economy just sum private and government savings: S T = S G + S P = T (G+T r)+gdp T +T r C = GDP C G. But because GDP = C +I +G+X it is the case that S T = I + X = I T, or total savings within the economy is exactly the same as total investment I T = I + X. - Price Indexes and Inflation.

9 TE Adjustment Mechanism in the Multiplier Model TE=C+I+ΔI+G+X TE1 TEC TEA A C B D E1 TE=C+I+G+X TE0 E0 ΔI MPC*ΔI Q0 QB QD Q1 GDP Initially the economy is in equilibrium at point E0, where aggregate demand is equal to the aggregate supply: TE0=Q0 There is a shock to aggregate demand (TE): (i) either investment changes ΔTE=ΔI (as it is the case on the graph) (ii) or government uses fiscal policy: government purchases: ΔTE=ΔG taxes ΔTE=-MPC*ΔT As a result at point E0 demand increase to TEA=TE0+ΔI Yet, since at point E0 firms are still producing Q0 they are willing to expand output to QB=TEA to meet this additional demand ΔI To increase output they hire workers who increase production from Q0 to QB. The income these workers earn is equal to the additional output they produce, that is ΔI Yet as workers' income increases with ΔDI=ΔI they are spending more at the market ΔC=MPC*ΔDI=ΔTE. (As a result demand jumps from TEA to TEC and is higher than the amount of the goods produced in the economy QB - we have excess supply.) Firms are willing to expand output to QD=TEC to meet this additional demand they higher workers to produce more output. As a result the disposable income of these workers increases: ΔDI=(QD-QB)=MPC*ΔI ΔDI =MPC*ΔI This circle repeats until ΔDI=0
