The Multiplier
Autonomous Expenditure Ù Independent of charges in Y [GDP]
Induced Expenditure Ù Varies as Y [GDP] varies
Change in Autonomous Expenditure => shift in AE Schedule => new intercept of AE

The Multiplier: Value
1. Slope of AE schedule
AE = C + I = 10 + 0.9Y + 25 = 35 + 0.9Y
Slope = 0.9
2. Multiplier = 1 .
1 ± slope of AE schedule
= 1 .
1 ± 0.9
= 10
Observation: In this model, slope of AE Schedule is mpc, so multiplier is 1___
1 ± mpc
Extended Model
AE = C + I + G + X ± M
Government Sector
G = Government expenditure
T = Taxes
(Note: T affects AE indirectly by influencing C)
Foreign Sector
X = Exports
M = Imports
Government Spending and Taxes
1. Spending __
G = G political determinants
2. Taxes
2.1 T = t * Y where t = marginal tax rate
T = 0.2 Y numerical example
2.2 YD (Disposable Income) = Y ± T
C = C0 (constant) + C1 (mpc) YD
= C0 + C1 (Y ± T)
Consumption and Real GDP (National Income)
C = 10 + 0.9 YD Note: YD
T = 0.2 Y

## Document Summary

Autonomous expenditure independent of charges in y [gdp] Change in autonomous expenditure => shift in ae schedule => new intercept of ae. Example: :943424:8503/9:70: induced consumption expenditure is key. The multiplier: value: slope of ae schedule. = c + i = 10 + 0. 9y + 25 = 35 + 0. 9y. Observation: in this model, slope of ae schedule is mpc, so multiplier is 1___ T = taxes (note: t affects ae indirectly by influencing c) 2. 1 t = t * y where t = marginal tax rate. 2. 2 yd (disposable income) = y t. C = c0 (constant) + c1 (mpc) yd. = 10 + 0. 9 (y 0. 2 y) Thus: c = 10 + 0. 9 (y t) _: x = x predetermined by other forces. Exports do not depend upon real gdp: foreign versus domestic prices, exchange rate, imports, foreign versus domestic prices, exchange rate.
