Expenditures Multipliers: The Keynesian Model Lecture notes 9 Instructor: MELTEM INCE

Expenditure Plans The aggregate expenditure model explains fluctuations in aggregate demand by identifying the forces that determine expenditure plans. The components of aggregate expenditure are: 1) Consumption expenditure 2) Investment 3) Government purchases of goods and services 4) Net exports (exports minus imports)

Expenditure Plans The main factors that influence consumption and saving are: 1) Real interest rate 2) Disposable income 3) Purchasing power of net assets 4) Expected future income

Expenditure Plans The consumption function shows the relationship between consumption expenditure and disposable income. The saving function shows the relationship between saving and disposable income.

Consumption and Saving Plans
Disposable income is either spent on consumption (C) or saved (S), so YD = C + S The relationship between consumption expenditure and disposable income, with other things remaining the same, is called the consumption function. The amount of consumption expenditure that takes place when people have zero income is called autonomous consumption expenditure.

Consumption and Saving Plans
The relationship between saving and disposable income, with other things remaining the same, is called the saving function. Negative saving is called dissaving

Marginal Propensity to Consume
The marginal propensity to consume (MPC) is the fraction of a change in disposable income that is consumed. MPC= ΔC ΔYd

Marginal Propensity to Save
The marginal propensity to save (MPS) is the fraction of a change in disposable income that is saved. MPS= ΔS ΔYd

MPC AND MPS ΔC + ΔS = ΔYd MPC + MPS = 1
Because consumption expenditure and saving exhaust disposable income, the marginal propensity to consume plus the marginal propensity to save always equals 1. ΔC + ΔS = ΔYd Dividing both sides by DYD ΔYd ΔYd ΔYd MPC + MPS = 1

The Aggregate Expenditure Model
Aggregate planned expenditure is planned consumption expenditure plus planned investment plus planned government expenditures plus planned exports minus planned imports. Planned consumption expenditure and planned imports are influenced — and influence — real GDP

The Aggregate Expenditure Model
The aggregate expenditure schedule lists aggregate planned expenditure generated at each level of real GDP. Aggregate planned expenditure increases as real GDP increases. However, only consumption expenditure and imports increase with real GDP. Induced expenditure is the sum of the components of aggregate expenditure that vary with real GDP. Autonomous expenditure is the sum of the components of aggregate expenditure that are not influenced by real GDP.

The Size of the Multiplier
The multiplier is the amount by which a change in autonomous expenditure is multiplied to determine the change in equilibrium expenditure that it generates. Multiplier = Change in equilibrium expenditure Change in autonomous expenditure = = 4 £200 billion £50 billion

The Multiplier and the Slope of the AE Curve
The slope of the AE curve determines the magnitude of the multiplier. The steeper the AE curve, the greater is the increase in induced expenditure that results from a given increase in real GDP. Multiplier = ΔY = ΔA Slope of AE curve If the slope of the AE curve is 0.75: Multiplier = = = 4

Aggregate Expenditure
Aggregate expenditure is the sum of planned amounts of consumption expenditure, investment, government expenditures, and exports minus the planned amount of imports: AE = C + I + G + X – M We write the consumption function as: C = a + bYd

Equilibrium Expenditure
Grouping together terms that involve Y we obtain: AE = [a + I + G + X] + [b(1 – t) – m]Y Autonomous expenditure (A) Slope of the AE curve

Equilibrium Expenditure
Equilibrium expenditure occurs when aggregate planned expenditure equals real GDP: AE = Y To calculate equilibrium expenditure and real GDP, we solve the equation for the AE curve and the 45º line for AE and Y: AE = A + [b(1 – t) – m]Y

Equilibrium Expenditure
Replace AE with Y in the AE equation to obtain: Y = A + [b(1 – t) – m]Y or
