Assume that the equations below describe the expenditures within a particular macroeconomy and that these equations conform to the assumptions we've made in the lecture regarding the fixed price level Aggregate Expenditure model. All values for expenditure and income are dollar amounts, but for simplicity, we've dropped the $ below.
C = 0.8(DI) + 1000  C = Consumption expenditure, DI = Disposable Income 
I = 2000  I = Investment expenditure 
G = 1000  G = government expenditure 
X = 1600  X = spending on exports 
M = 1800  M = spending on imports 
DI = Y  T  Y = real GDP, T = tax revenues/> 
T = 1000  
Yp = 12000  Yp = Potential GDP
