Investment Expenditure
I = F (roi)
There is a relationship between I and ROI
Downward sloping = high interest, low investment
Other factors affecting Investment
1. Availability of resources, more resources more investment (+)
2. Cost of resources, higher cost of resources, less investment (-)
3. Technology (+)
4. Existing capital stock (-) higher existing cap, lower future investments
5. Future expectations (+) e.g state of economy
6. Taxes (-)
According to Keynes, I is autonomous to y/gdp (income)
AE (aggregate expenditure) = C+I
The Multiplier Effect
