Chapter Eleven2 Now that we’ve assembled the IS-LM model of aggregate demand, let’s apply it to three issues: 1) Causes of fluctuations in national income 2) How IS-LM fits into the model of aggregate supply and aggregate demand in Chapter 9 3) The Great Depression Now that we’ve assembled the IS-LM model of aggregate demand, let’s apply it to three issues: 1) Causes of fluctuations in national income 2) How IS-LM fits into the model of aggregate supply and aggregate demand in Chapter 9 3) The Great Depression r Y LM(P 0 )IS r0r0 Y0Y0

Chapter Eleven3 IS-LM The intersection of the IS curve and the LM curve determines the level of national income, and the interest rate for a given price level. If the IS or LM curve shifts, the short-run equilibrium of the economy changes, and national income fluctuates. Let’s examine how changes in policy and shocks to the economy can cause these curves to shift.

Chapter Eleven4 IS LM r y

Chapter Eleven5 LM r Y IS A +G+G Consider an increase in government purchases. This will raise the level of income by  G/(1- MPC). IS´ B The IS curve shifts to the right by  G/(1- MPC) which raises income and the interest rate.

Chapter Eleven6 LM r Y IS A -T-T Consider a decrease in taxes of  T. This will raise the level of income by  T × MPC/(1- MPC). IS´ B The IS curve shifts to the right by  T × MPC/(1- MPC) which raises income and the interest rate.

Chapter Eleven7 IS LM r y

Chapter Eleven8 IS r Y LM A B +M+M Consider an increase in the money supply. The LM curve shifts downward and lowers the interest rate which raises income. Why? Because when the Fed increases the supply of money, people have more money than they want to hold at the prevailing interest rate. As a result, they start depositing this extra money in banks or use it to buy bonds. The interest rate r then falls until people are willing to hold all the extra money that the Fed has created; this brings the money market to a new equilibrium. The lower interest rate, in turn, has ramifications for the goods market. A lower interest rate stimulates planned investment, which increases planned expenditure, production, and income Y.

Chapter Eleven9 The IS-LM model shows that monetary policy influences income by changing the interest rate. This conclusion sheds light on our analysis of monetary policy in Chapter 9. In that chapter we showed that in the short run, when prices are sticky, an expansion in the money supply raises income. But we didn’t discuss how a monetary expansion induces greater spending on goods and services—a process called the monetary transmission mechanism. The IS-LM model shows that an increase in the money supply lowers the interest rate, which stimulates investment and thereby expands the demand for goods and services.

Chapter Eleven10 The IS-LM model shows how monetary and fiscal policy influence the equilibrium level of income. The predictions of the model, however, are qualitative, not quantitative. The IS-LM model that shows that increases in government purchases raise GDP and that increases in taxes lower GDP. But, when economists analyze specific policy proposals, they must know the direction and size of the effect. Macroeconometric models describe the economy quantitatively, rather than just qualitatively.

Chapter Eleven11

Chapter Eleven12 You probably noticed from the IS and LM diagrams that r and Y were on the two axes. Now we’re going to bring a third variable, the price level (P) into the analysis. We can accomplish this by linking both two- dimensional graphs. r P Y Y IS LM(P 1 ) A A AD To derive AD, start at point A in the top graph. Now increase the price level from P 1 to P 2. An increase in P lowers the value of real money balances, and Y, shifting LM leftward to point B. The +  P triggers a sequence of events that end with a -  Y, the inverse relationship that defines the downward slope of AD. Notice that r increased. Since r increased, we know that investment will decrease, as it just got more costly to take on various investment projects. This sets off a multiplier process since -  I causes a –  Y. The -  Y triggers -  C as we move up the IS curve. LM(P 2 ) B B P2P2 P1P1

Chapter Eleven13 +G+G This translates into a rightward shift of the IS and AD curves. LM (P 2 ) Suppose there is a +  G. In the short run, we move along SRAS from point A to point B. But as the output market clears, in the long-run, the price level will increase from P 0 to P 2. This +  P decreases the value of real money balances, which translates into a leftward shift of the LM curve. Finally, this leaves us at point C in both diagrams. r P Y Y IS LM (P 0 ) ADAD P0P0 AD´ IS´ SRAS A A B B P2P2 C C LRAS Y = C (Y-T) + I(r) + G M/ P = L (r, Y)

Chapter Eleven14 Now it’s time to determine the effects on the variables in the economy. For the variables Y, P, and r, you can read the effects right off the diagrams. Remember that SR is the movement from A to B. +, because Y moved from Y* to Y´ 0, because prices are sticky in the SR. +, because a +  Y leads to a rise in r as IS slides along the LM curve. +, because a +  Y increases the level of consumption (  C=C(  Y-T)). –, since r increased, the level of investment decreased.

Chapter Eleven16 LM B AD´ B Notice that M/ was increased, thus increasing the value of the real money supply which translates into a rightward shift of the LM and AD curves. Suppose there is a +  M. Look at the appropriate equation that captures the M term: In the short run, we move along SRAS from point A to point B. But as the output market clears, in the long run, the price level will increase from P 0 to P 2. This +  P decreases the value of the real money supply which translates into a leftward shift of the LM curve. Finally, this leaves us at point C in both diagrams.

Chapter Eleven22 The spending hypothesis suggests that perhaps the cause of the decline may have been a contractionary shift of the IS curve. The money hypothesis attempts to explain the effects of the historical fall of the money supply of 25 percent from 1929 to 1933, during which time unemployment rose from 3.2 percent to 25.2 percent. Some economists say that deflation worsened the Great Depression. They argue that the deflation may have turned what in 1931 was a typical economic downturn into an unprecedented period of high unemployment and depressed income. Because the falling money supply was possibly responsible for the falling price level, it could very well have been responsible for the severity of the depression. Let’s see how changes in the price level affect income in the IS-LM model.

Chapter Eleven23 A Mankiw Macroeconomics Case Study A Mankiw Macroeconomics Case Study The Financial Crisis and the Economic Downturn of 2008 and 2009 In 2008, the economy experienced a financial crisis stemming mainly from the 20% fall in housing prices across the nation. This had four main repercussions: 1) Rise in mortgage defaults and house foreclosures 2) Large losses at the various financial institutions that owned Mortgage-backed securities 3) Rise in stock market volatility, which led to a decline in consumer confidence In January 2009, President Barack Obama proposed to increase he proposed to increase government spending to stimulate AD.This is almost surely not going to prevent the economy from dipping further into a downward spiral.

Chapter Eleven24 In the IS-LM model, falling prices raise income. For any given supply of money M, a lower price level implies higher real money balances, M/P. An increase in real money balances causes an expansionary shift in the LM curve, which leads to higher income. Another way in which falling prices increase income is called the Pigou effect. In the 1930s, economist Arthur Pigou pointed out that real money balances are part of household wealth. As prices fall and real money balances rise, households increase their consumption spending and the IS curve shifts to the right.

Chapter Eleven25 There are two theories to explain how falling prices could depress income rather than raise it. 1)Debt-deflation theory, unexpected falls in the price level 2)Effects of expected inflation Debt-deflation theory redistributes wealth between creditors and debtors. A fall in the price level raises the real amount of the debt. The impoverishment of the debtors causes them to spend less, and creditors to spend more. If their propensities to consume are the same, there is no aggregate effect. But, if debtors reduce more than the amount that creditors increase spending, the net effect on aggregate demand is a reduction. This contracts IS, and reduces national income.

Chapter Eleven26 LM Y IS A IS´ B An expected deflation (a negative value of  e ) raises the real interest rate for any given nominal interest rate, and this depresses investment spending. The reduction in investment shifts the IS curve downward. The level of income and the nominal interest rate (i) fall, but the real interest rate (r) rises. i2i2 r 1 = i 1 r2r2 interest rate, i
