The Goods Markets and the IS Relation

IS-LM

- The IS/LM model is a macroeconomic tool that demonstrates the relationship between interest rates and real output in the goods and services market and the money market.
- The intersection of the IS and LM curves is the "General Equilibrium" where there is simultaneous equilibrium in both markets
- IS/LM stands for Investment Saving / Liquidity preference Money supply.

The Goods Markets and the IS Relation

IS-LM - HISTORY

- The IS/LM model was born at the Econometric Conference held in Oxford during September, 1936.
- Roy Harrod, John R. Hicks, and James Meade all presented papers describing mathematical models attempting to summarize John Maynard Keynes' General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money.

The Goods Markets and the IS Relation

IS-LM - HISTORY

- Although disputed in some circles and accepted to be imperfect, the model is widely used and seen as useful in gaining an understanding of macroeconomic theory.

The Goods Markets and the IS Relation

IS-LM - FORMULATION

- The model is presented as a graph of two intersecting lines in the first quadrant.
- The horizontal axis represents national income or real gross domestic product and is labelled Y. The vertical axis represents the real interest rate, i. Since this is a non-dynamic model, there is a fixed relationship between the nominal interest rate and the real interest rate (the former equals the latter plus the expected inflation rate which is exogenous in the short run); therefore variables such as money demand which actually depend on the nominal interest rate can equivalently be expressed as depending on the real interest rate.

The Goods Markets and the IS Relation

IS-LM - FORMULATION

- The point where these schedules intersect represents a short-run equilibrium in the real and monetary sectors (though not necessarily in other sectors, such as laboUr markets): both the product market and the money market are in equilibrium. This equilibrium yields a unique combination of the interest rate and real GDP.
- Lets now begin with our explanation of the IS-LM framework…

The level of sales

The interest rate

The Financial Market and the LM Relation

Money market equilibrium revisited

M = nominal money supply (controlled by the Central Bank)

$YL(i) = Demand for money (function of nominal income and the interest rate)

The government decides to reduce the budget deficit by increasing taxes, while holding government spending constant.

The effects of fiscal and monetary policy

Record high federal budget deficit (5.4% of GDP)

High unemployment and slow growth

Deficit reduction reduces output

Expansionary fiscal policy increases the deficit

The Martin-Thiessen Policy Mix

Observations:

- The combined effect of policies by the government to reduce the deficit and the central bank to lower interest rates allowed the economy to grow significantly from 1994-1999.
- This expansion increased tax revenues and helped turn a large deficit into a surplus.

The U.S. Economy and the IS-LM Model after 2000

- A review of Figure 4 explains the events around the 2001 recession:
- The large shift from IS to IS” represents the decline in investment spending that triggered the recession.
- The right shift from LM to LM’ represents the Federal Reserve decision to cut interest rates.
- The smaller shift from IS” to IS’ represents the increase in government spending and tax cuts.

The U.S. Economy and the IS-LM Model after 2000

- A review of Figure 4 explains the events around the 2001 recession:
- The economy would have been at A” without changes in monetary & fiscal policy.
- The decline in output was reduced from Y to Y” (without policy changes) to Y to Y’ (with policy changes).
- The policy changes made the recession less severe.

The U.S. Economy and the IS-LM Model after 2000

Questions

- Weren’t the events of September 11, 2001, the cause of the recession?
- Why is it not possible to avoid all recessions via monetary and fiscal policy?
- Was the monetary-fiscal mix used to fight the recession a textbook example of how policy should be conducted?
- Can the recession of 2008, initiated by the very sharp reduction in housing construction, be limited via lower interest rates and tax cuts?

A Summary

- Monetary policy changes interest rates rapidly and output slowly
- The Central Bank must consider the output lag when implementing monetary policy

Does the IS-LM Model Actually Capture What Happens in the Economy?

Does the IS-LM model pass two tests?

Are the assumptions of IS-LM reasonable?

Are the implications of IS-LM consistent with real-world observations?

Does the IS-LM Model Actually Capture What Happens in the Economy?

- The IS-LM model explains movements in economic activity well in the short-run.
- The IS-LM model is consistent with economic observations once dynamics are introduced.
- An increase in the interest rate due to monetary contraction leads to a steady decline in output.
- An increase in investment or consumption leads to an increase in output.

Summary

- The IS-LM model illustrates the implications in both the goods and financial markets.
- The IS relation shows the equilibrium combinations of the interest rate and level of output in the goods market.
- An increase in interest rates leads to a decline in output.

Summary

- The LM relation shows the equilibrium combinations of the interest rate and level of output in the financial markets.
- Given the real money supply, an increase in output leads to an increase in the interest rate.
- A fiscal expansion shift IS to the right, leading to increased output and interest rate

Summary

- A monetary expansion shifts the LM curve down, leading to an increase in output and a decrease in interest rates.
- The combination of monetary and fiscal policies is know as the policy mix.
- Sometimes monetary policy and fiscal policy are used for a common goal.
