6 25 points total. Answer in the space provided. Name 31. a. Suppose that the federal government s tax revenues fall at the same time that it increases its expenditures. According to the model of the financial system that we discussed in class, this change in policy should cause equilibrium interest rates to (circle one: RISE, FALL) and the amount of private investment to (RISE, FALL). Use a graph below to illustrate this change, being sure to label all curves, axes, and equilibria: b. At the same time as the change in policy discussed above, suppose that a recession occurs due to a fall in investor optimism. The decline in investor optimism will reverse the effect of the government policy change on (INTEREST RATES, INVESTMENT), but it will accentuate its effect on (INTEREST RATES, INVESTMENT), c. Explain your answer in part b, using a graph. Label all curves and axes. Turn over for Extra Credit Questions 6

7 EXTRA CREDIT (UP TO 8 POINTS) ANSWER BELOW. XCa Recently, the Fed has injected a tremendous amount of liquidity into the banking system, as explained in Hamilton s blogpost. Using a graph, show the effect of the Fed s liquidity injections on equilibrium interest rates and investment. Be careful to justify the curve shift(s) that you portray, using a sentence or two of discussion. XCb. Suppose the Chinese, Japanese, Saudis, and other foreigners buy large amounts of U.S. Treasury bonds. Using a new graph, show the effect on equilibrium interest rates and investment. Be careful to justify the curve shift(s) that you portray, using a sentence or two of discussion. 7

9 ID: A SHORT ANSWER 31. a. RISE, FALL, Graph should show a decrease in the supply of loanable funds. b. Interest Rates, Investment. c. Graph should show a demand decrease. XCa. The inflow of liquidity will not affect savings, but it might affect optimism and faith in the financial system. Therefore, a rightward shift in the Demand for loanable funds curve will tend to drive interest rates and investment up. XCb. Foreigners savings will move into the system, increasing the supply of loanable funds and increasing investment and driving down interest rates. Alternatively, you can think of it as a decrease in the net domestic demand for loanable funds, as the foreigners investment in the US crowds out domestic investment spending. 2
